    Mr tig???

    So, even if you don't sign up for advertising & you place all your stuff in the public domain, YouTube still sends you notices of subscribers & gives you a channel (what????).

    I follow one fella's links to see what he's watching and BAM! MR TIG... I gotta see this... Part2 is all I've seen so far.


    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02U0H15_WEg[/ame]


    Think I'll log out and watch a bit.

    OH! And I saw the stuff I've linked in my own threads now say "As shown on Welding Web". (that's creepy but maybe cool, I just dunno).

    Yea, some videos are great, but the welds are not that good. There should be nice looking golden weld, not grey... ...also weld bead is not great either. I think, we have few better welders here on weldingweb.

    The weld was under filled and looked cold.

    Re: Mr tig???

    I haven't watched enough to comment, though it appears he hasn't been sweating in the shop much. I've been known to get that appears thing wrong though...

    I'm wondering if he's somehow sponsored maybe public education? I think if it were Lincoln the production would have been a bit better maybe. But the graphics and production are better than basement quality.

    None the less, when you call yourself "Mr Tig" or "Dr. Torch" (or anything similar) you better have some game 'cause everyone's gonna comment if you don't.

    Re: Mr tig???

    looks like he gave some good information, laid down a suitable weld and likely won't break. But I know if you're teaching welding you have to be the best welder in the world to be worthy around here. I mean seriously guys, if you're trying to learn the basics of stainless tube welding thats a decent video. As for the welding hanging upside down and out of position, give me a brake man. yes i do sympathize with you because i do the same when i'm on site. But being able to weld out of position doesn't make you the greatest in the world.

    Its two different worlds, if you work in a fab shop what the hell would you need to know how to do that for anyway? Is this dude the best, no, is he the worst, far from it.

    Mr. Tig = Wyatt Swain.

    Kind of a self proclaimed "expert" that works with and for Lincoln. Travels the show circuit, does some questionable repairs, overall a decent tig welder and nice guy ( however he didnt take me up on my offer to try gas welding at a show ). If you have ever seen the Lincoln guys in action at a trade show, its more like a circus than anything, lots of big mouths and little to back them up. They like to spew lots of "information" that of course casts their machines in a good light, after all they are salesmen.

    Re: Mr tig???

    thanks for posting the video but that guy is a huge joke. Only welding he does is bench welding with perfect surroundings and environment with supposedly "top of the line" equipment and he still doesn't weld that great....To justify his discoloration (grey in color) he has to clean it. Now lets see him weld show quality stainless headers or tanks and leave the color with out buffing it out.....

    wow! look i'm not saying people working in the field aren't great welders, it takes A LOT to be able to weld in the environments we go to. But that is the WORST argument for a welder in the world. Just because someone doesn't do industrial welding in the sh!t so to speak doesn't mean their not a welder. I suppose people welding on space shuttles aren't welders since they work in pristine environments with the best money can buy.

    This guy isn't the cats meow, but he isn't joe bob welding in the trailer park either. Come back down to earth people. Welding in a shop is still welding!

    Before someone says something, I'm not a workbench welder.

    Re: Mr tig???

    I found this old thread doing a google search for Mr. Tig....sorry for digging it up

    I'm a big fan of Jay Leno's Garage, and this guy was just on it recently. Dude was pretty off on a lot of info. He held up a small(maybe 1/8) fillet weld and said that because it was tig welded it was stronger than 1/2 fillets done in other processes. WHAT?!? Also said that woman are getting into tig welding because it's "clean and precise" and "they" tend to be precise. WTF. Sexist and full of bad info.

    In his defense(at least for his other vids), welding....even "bench welding" while being filmed isn't the easiest thing in the world to do. I'd still rather watch Jody do his thing than Mr. Tig.

    Re: Mr tig???

    I've never seen any of his vids.

    Not all that into the whole Internet welding thing. I saw him at FABTECH but had no interest in meeting him. Just recognized him from youtube blurbs.

    I believe Kevin Caron has done videos with him.

    Dunno otherwise. When we were walking by weld.coms booth, I saw the CK display & made a beeline for it

    Dude you really shouldn't bust chops about fieldres aka ww member thorton. That guy is one hell of a pipe weldor. He may have some ways of doing things in his videos that might seem wrong to someone who doesn't know much about the trade. However they're aren't many guys that could carry his lunchbox in his discipline of work. Comparing Mr. Tig to him is a insult to fieldres.

    I know, I was just going for a cheap laugh was all: they're both really good, it was a little humor I thought up and just wanted to share it even though I knew better. :S

    He's a very talented guy.

    He's also nuttier than a Christmas fruitcake

    Some of his vids made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants.

    Re: Mr tig???

    I like to wire wheel my stainless pipe to remove the oxides prior to welding. Then another wire wheel right after welding to polish the weld.
    His welding looks fine to me. The inside of the tube looks great.

    Not that it makes much difference on this forum but Wyatt used to work at the skunk works plant on the sr71.

    Saw the photos on his office wall.

    That is nice, but these days he spends his time pushing goods.

    He was banned here for spamming. Throwing in a casual comment for advertising purposes. Then he became associated with weld.com. Weld.com did the same, posting some stupid useless or even wrong comment to further their advertising. Not much different than the sponsored forum folks have done, and they were stopped.

    I am sure Wyatt is a likable guy. I just think he wears goggles with dollar signs on them. Even before he was banned I warned him about spamming. It did no good.
