    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    That's my welder! Haven't turned it on yet, still in school. Good choice, I hope you can set the bar high for me to achieve. I have done cutting with a torch, Oxy-acetylene, stick and next lesson is MIG. I finish with TIG and am taking a dedicated TIG course after Xmas. Keep the project photos coming, I'm looking!

    5th,
    I have a bunch of questions on this pic since I have a art project in the future I will probably have to make. I know I need to practice before I do the real item, but am just trying to lessen the amount of variables.

    Is this 1/8" and is it 3003 or 6061?
    It looks like this side is finished and there are some tacks (bumps sticking up) on the other two sides that are visible. Is that correct?
    When you do a series of long runs like this, do you just start at one end and just keep going?
    When you do the opposite side, do you try to travel in the same direction (left to right) or do you go left to right on one side then right to left on the opposite?
    I had one project turn into a pringles chip since it warped, that is why I am asking these two questions.
    Recommended amps?
    I see the #7 cup, it looks like 3/32" tungsten, what kind/color?
    Filler rod type and size?

    Thanks in advance

    Nice looks like something that could be seen in the scrap metal art thread. I can't say I have ever seen a black snowflake.

    Hey so I think this one is 1/8" 5052

    Yes this sides finished and the other side you can see the tacks. On this particular one the inside was MIG welded and tacks were cut out by whoever built it but you can still see on the unwelded side where they were.

    I just go as far as I can before getting to the point where I'm uncomfortable and the weld starts to suffer. Usually whatever a full length of filler will give me.

    It depends on what it's for and how it'll look. If I'm doing a box like this It doesn't matter because it gets ground smooth. Sometimes I want all the vertical welds and horizontal welds going the same direction and sometimes I want them wrapping all the way around.

    Big boxes like this will suck in and deform but generally stay square. We also sometimes put internal bracing, fuel tanks have baffles that double as bracing.

    I don't have an amperage setting for you I just set my machine to the max amperage my Tungsten can handle and use the foot pedal. 210- 3/32 tungsten and 290- 1/8 tungsten.

    I generally run a #7 for outside corners and a #5 for hard to reach or lower visibility spots. Usually 3/32 ceriated (gray) tungsten.

    5th,

    Thanks for the detailed response. If the customer follows through on their request next year after the holidays, I may hit you up in a PM for some advice.
