What you will learn in this video:

TIG welding is one of the most difficult welding processes to master for many reasons. One reason that often gets overlooked is because there are so many different parts, pieces, components and accessories that it can be very difficult to choose the correct torch configuration. And lets face it, if you are starting with the wrong setup, it is going to be difficult to finish with the right results. In this episode of TIG Time we show you how to choose the correct Tungsten diameter and Alumina cup for your project. We also introduce the Mr. TIG series Gas Lens Kit.

Semi Automatic TIG Welding with a Cold Wire Feeder

Aug 2014 22

Written by Mr. TIG (Wyatt Swaim)

When most welders think of semi automatic welding using a wire feeder, the first thing that comes to mind is MIG welding. But what many welders don't know is that TIG welding, while often thought of as a completely manual process with wire fed by hand, can also be automated through the use of a wire feeder. With the help of a cold wire feeder, the process of feeding the TIG wire can be automated much like it is in MIG welding. This has many benefits, including; no stops due to insufficient filler because of small cut lengths, perfect pulses of the TIG wire ensure better wire feeding and it allows the welder to concentrate on the weld itself rather than feeding the wire.

In this video, we are going to introduce the CK Worldwide WF-5 and some of its accessories. If you like what you see, check out more info on it in the Weld.com store!

Written by Mr. TIG (Wyatt Swaim)

So many people don't understand polarity as it relates to welding. Unfortunately, this is a huge part of ANY welding process, not just TIG welding, but for the this video we are going to concentrate on polarity as it relates to TIG. First, in this video you will learn the basic differences between DCEN (Direct Current Electrode Negative) and DCEP (Direct Current Electrode Positive). You will learn how to look for and diagnose if you are setup in the wrong polarity and when you should use each.

Written by Mr. TIG (Wyatt Swaim)

What you will learn in this video:

In this video, Wyatt looks at the AHP AlphaTIG 200X. If you are just getting started in TIG welding, many welders don't know what machine to get and don't want to spend $3,000 on an industrial TIG machine... And they don't need to! There are good machines out there that are AC/DC welders for under $1,000. The AHP AlphaTIG 200X is one of those machines. We will go over the features, advantages, pros and cons of this machine and how to make it work like a machine twice its price!
