15 15 Fri
Written by Mr. TIG (Wyatt Swaim)

What you will learn in this video:

In this video we look at welding heavy plate Aluminum with less than 200 amps! We are welding 3/8" aircraft quality Aluminum with a 200 amp machine and a standard CK17 air cooled torch setup. The way we accomplish this is by using Helium as our gas and our machines pulser to achieve more drive. We also talk about using ultra pure Helium to get the best results and make sure you have no contaminants in your weld (if you are trying to achieve x-ray quality).

Written by Mr. TIG (Wyatt Swaim)

What you will learn in this video:

Most people think that the only way you can weld Aluminum is if you have an AC welding machine; and in many cases that is true. However, if you are really in a pinch and NEED to weld Aluminum, but all you have is a DC machine, this is how you can do it... And NO, you don't need helium for this, it is done with 100% Argon!

What you will learn in this video:

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a gas flow meter and a gas regulator? How about how to decide the difference between a good and bad regulator / flow meter? Do you want someone to tell you which meters or regulators are a good value and which ones are overkill (or just plain bad)? Well this video is probably the one you are looking for! Watch this video and let Mr. TIG teach you how to choose the best value flow meter / regulator for your needs.

In this episode we look are five different types of gas filtering devices. Some cost as little as $25 and some are as much as $300. So what makes these devices range SO much and is it worth it to spend the extra cash? Find out in this video!
