TIG Time: Getting Perfect Color Out of your Stainless Steel TIG Welds
What you will see in this Episode:
TIG Welding is many times looked at as an art form, even more so than other forms of welding. For that reason, many people want to make sure that their TIG welds not only pass strength tests, but they want them to look as aesthetically pleasing as possible, too. In this episode of TIG Time, Wyatt shows you how you can get the best looking TIG welds simply by increasing your gas coverage.
To ensure that every weld is the exact same, Mr. TIG is using an automated Bug-O system. Every weld will have the same travel speed (8 inches per minute) and amperage setting. The only difference is the cup and lens used on the end of the torch.
The welding cups used in this demonstration are all choices that you could get away with using in day to day practice. The only difference is the aesthetic quality of the weld. The first cup demonstrated is a standard #7 cup without a gas lens, the second cup is a #7 cup with a gas lens and finally the last cup used is a jumbo gas lens setup.
