TIG Welding Practice on Lap Joints

Today we’re TIG welding some carbon steel lap joints. Roughly .120 thick. That’s three millimeters thick. We’ll talk a little bit about filler metal size, gas lenses, and why the second side usually welds worse than the first side. Let’s get into it. read more

60 ft Metal Rack – Dual Shield Flux Core

Just a few videos ago I talked to JD out back of his new location sitting on a gang box and asked him what kind of work he liked to do. You remember that? What’s your favorite kind of work?

JD: “Favorite kind of work is either big pipe or big mezzanine, just doing the bigger, heavier stuff. It just pays better too.” read more

AC Frequency Settings: TIG Welding Aluminum

I’m TIG welding aluminum today, and I’m comparing AC frequency. I’m gonna compare 50 hertz to 250 hertz. I’ve got some aluminum tubing, some eight-inch aluminum tubing, O-70 wall. It’s a bit less, a little bit less than two millimeters thick. I’m gonna set it up on a positioner and I’m gonna compare penetration, same amperage, 50 hertz, 250 hertz. Let’s do it. read more

Lincoln Ranger and 7018

I visited my friend, JD Brewer, the other day. He’s relocated right down the road from where he used to be, but it’s in a little bit bigger area with a nice, nice overhead crane. I’m gonna show you a little bit of that today. When I visited him, there was this hot job going on where he had to, by the end of the shift, get a security bar put on some shipping containers for a shop right down the road. They’d had a break-in the night before, stole a bunch of stuff. So I thought I’d bring you along, ’cause I thought it’s pretty interesting to see what you can whip together. No drawing, no sketch, just like, “Hey, get some bars on this thing so somebody doesn’t break into it again before we can get security cameras and a better lock on the gate.” Things like that. read more

Stainless Steel Tips – Part 2: Pulse Settings and Purge Tips

This is a continuation of TIG welding stainless steel video. Okay, this is part two. I’m still TIG welding that stainless steel manifold. In this video I’m going to weld the threaded nipples on and I’m going to weld the end caps on. That brings me into welding with some pulse settings for those threaded nipples and some purging for the end caps because I can’t get backing on the inside of those and they need to be shielded somehow. I’m going to talk about purging and pulsing. We’ll do a little bit of plasma cam cutting for some brackets on this thing, should be a fun video. All right? Let’s dive in. read more
