It’s no secret that welders create some amazing creations. To people that don’t weld or fabricate, a good looking bead isn’t appreciated or admired like it is to one of us. Instagram has become a hotbed of welding talent and a community for some of the greatest welders in the world to share projects and great looking welds.
In an attempt to showcase some of our favorite welders on Instagram and show high school students what welders do on a daily basis, we started the #WeldersofIG campaign. Each week, we will choose a welder that excels at their craft and share their work daily on IG with a tribute to them here on Weld.com.
In honor of #weavewednesday we are going to do our best to help the newbies in our audience learn how to walk their cups to Instagram glory. If you’re just getting into welding and want to master one of the coolest techniques out there; this is for you. If you’re an experienced TIG welder and already know the ins and outs of walking the cup, read it anyway and add your two cents in comments!
Before we start, whip out your phone and check out Tho Nguyen (@gac1980) on Instagram. Tho can run some seriously slick weaves with a TIG torch, which is exactly what we will be attempting to learn today.
