SOURCE: TIG welder help

Choose the electrode to use for the project you are starting as well as the variety of alloys you'll use such as the 6061 Aluminum alloy electrode. Grind the electrode to a point. Try to create a tip and sharpen it to help it become more rounded as you weld. Place the electrode into an electrode holder with the tip about 1/4-inch away from the sheath. Choose the settings on your tig welder. The three main ones are AC, DCEP and DCEN. Choose AC for aluminum. Slide the "cleaning/penetrating" slider more to the penetrating side. Set the "air on" to five seconds and the "max amps" to 250. Turn on the gas. For aluminum, use pure argon. For steel, an argon and carbon dioxide mix. Scrub your welding table or flat piece of sheet metal with a wire brush to make it clean and flat. Gear up in full welding safety gear including hood, goggles, apron and gloves. Hold the electrode in your dominant hand and start your welding project. Check your settings every so often to make sure they haven't changed and adjust as needed.

How to set up welder or aluminum tig welding


If you want to weld aluminium with a welder, your machine must be an AC/DC welder, then you will use only AC to do the weld, but as well you must have a contineous high frequency and according to what thickness you want to weld a water cooling argon torch wont be a luxury

Have a CT-200 Hobart Welder Getting high frequency but no current?


Sounds like the problem could be with your tig torch. Inside the tig torch you have a copper cable which carries your main welding current. If there is a break in the copper the high frequency is of such a high tension voltage that it can jump across the break in cable making it appear that your tig torch is fine. If you have a multimeter check continuity from one end of the torch to the other or try another tig torch.

What is the basic technique in welding


Hi:
Well don't know were to start, basic technique goes according with the type of metal to weld and type of wire to use.
I think if will be better if you read the basics of welding with MIG machines with an owner's manual. Check the link and go to section B-7.

Lincoln precision tig 225. Makes bad aluminum welds in AC. Welds show signs of contamination. Have tried new argon bottle. No leaks in gas lines. Using pure and 2% thoriated tungsten, 3/32, pure...


Hello; Make sure AC Auto Balancing is Enabled; And when Welding Aluminum Aways use 100% Pure Green Coded Tugsten.Make Sure you dont have 75/25 or possibly if you know for sure your frequency balancing on your machine is working you could possibly have a bad bottle of gas try the bottle of gas on the machine that you say that runs good if it runs good put it back on the 225 if the problems still exist there is something wrong with your machine`s Ac high freqency Auto Balancing.Make sure all connections are good,check tig head for loose connections. Step Up to A 1/8 size tugsten it will carry more heat and gets less contanimated.Every time you stick your tugsten it will run contanimated untill you burn it off or clean it ,if you stick you tugsten go ahead and put a clean piece back in the tig head, Contanimated tugsten wil run dirty for 5 to 20 minutes Untill you BURN it Back Clean !?

How too set up a tig welder for welding thin steel?


DC current, electrode negative (DC Straight, DC-), High frequency for start only (really don't have to use high freq at all for steel but it helps establish the arc without scratching), 1 amp per thousandth of material thickness is a good setting to start, adjust from there for the job. 1 amp/thousandth also applies to aluminum- it has a lower melting point than steel but conducts heat much better so power to weld is very nearly the same.

Use a sharp tungsten, don't ball it at all (as you would for AC work).

My tig welder wont arc unless I touch the metal with it


my guess would be the type of welding machine you have.usually there is extra switch which says start control also continious cycle , sometimes smaller machines dont have these switches to allow a wider variety of tweeking the welder ,also its ok if you have to touch the base metal cause thats what starts the contact with the work peice ,keep a arc after touching about 1/4 inch away from work peice ,also a good steady hand rest will make a good welder in any situation this should allow the arc to remaim stable with a comntinious weld arc puddle. happy welding

Mig problem


For certain type of work TIG is required, like welding chrome moly for some racing organizations. Intricate work, like gunsmithing is also well suited to TIG. TIG is used by many auto restorers who prefer a more precise, perfect finish that requires little to no finish work. TIG is most similar to gas welding in technique, so if you've done oxy-fuel welding, TIG should be a natural transition. MIG is required by law and by insurance companies in many localities for structural repair of automotive frames. MIG is also much easier to learn and faster to weld. For doing other types of welding, like sheet metal, it can be a matter of personal preference. For an auto body repair shop or a novice welder, a MIG is a good, practical all-around welder.

TIG welder tips


Go to your local welding supply store. A TIG welder is a specialized welder that cannot be found at a building supply store. Stores like Maine Oxy-Acetylene Supply or Grainger Industrial Supply will carry them. Look in the classifieds of publications like Uncle Henry's. There you might find a TIG welder that someone is selling—and it may be at a good price. Be sure to ask the owner questions and take a look at the TIG welder before buying it. Explore eBay. Yes, even eBay has TIG welders. You'll need to ask the buyer questions about the welder's history and more. Perhaps, if the seller is near enough, you might be able to pick up the TIG welder yourself and save on shipping. Visit online retailers. Retailers like Welders Direct or Welding Mart carry TIG welders and would be able to answer any questions you might have (see Resources below). Consider the manufacturer of the TIG welders themselves. Lincoln, Miller, Hobart and others have their own websites. Call the companies directly and ask a lot of questions. These vendors are the best product source for welders (see Resources below).
