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.

SOURCE: miller syncrowave 200 makes buzzing noise from spark gaps.

Odd noises other than the normal sound of the spark gap working are often the result of dust and junk inside the case of your welder. That it also bogs down when it gets warmed up (fan comes on), also points to a need for some "annual maintenance" stuff being done.

Completely isolate the machine from the building power supply, pul the plug, open the circuit breaker, do whatever it is that makes the machine have no connection to any power.

Take off the covers with a 10mm or 3/8 inch socket (can't remember which)

Use a shop vac to **** out all of the dust and debris out of the machine. Low pressure (40 psi) air can sometimes be helpful to dislodge caked on dirt. Avoid any metal tools near the capacitor bank inside the welder.

Wipe off the fan blades.

Clean the spark gap electrodes by inserting and removing a matchbook cover, a business card, or a piece of white cardboard several times. Inspect the electrodes and adjust them according to the manual that came with the welder.

Check all of the power wiring connections for tightness by gently tugging on them. Look for signs of overheating on the power connections and on the internal connections to the welding terminals. Check the range switch for heating too.

With the cover still off, reconnect the power and turn the welder on. Look for obviously vibrating laminations on the main input transformer. If you see one buzzing back and forth, or if you notice lots of wear and tear on the varnish coating of the laminations, shut everything down and repair the loose laminations with some anti-fungal high voltage varnish.

Turn the welder off, disconnect the power, and put it all back together. Then turn the power back on and weld something, if htere is still a buzzing noise you'll need a Miller tech to solve the problem, you likely have a bad input transfirmer.

Regards,
Carl

I have a mishto 220 mig tig mma I can get the arc to work fine but the mig there's no arc at all the machine sounds like its welding but no arc at the gun I'm using gassless wire I thought it may be an...


They told me at welding school the mig transformer has a different slope (whatever that means?) to the tig and mma transformer so I am a little surprised at your question. The implication is two transformer are needed for the three types of welding and for tig and mig a dc converter and also for dc mma welding.

From your description it seems as though welding current is not arriving at the tip of the mig torch or the current is arriving in the wrong form.
You say the mma is fine but you didn't say whether it is fine on ac welding, dc welding or both. I have not tried mig welding with ac and have no idea whether it would be successful but I imagine a lot of sparks and not much welding. The problem could be the rectifier unit is either not working or is switched out of the circuit.

Polarity is important too with dc tig and mig welding.

I hope this provides food for thought.

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

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).
