    Dynasty 350 Settings

    Well ok I'm new here and new to Tig welding. I recently purchased a Dynasty 350, took a Tig course at a Tech. School. Now I am trying to better understand all the settings. The manual doesn't go into very much detail. I am for some reason determined to weld pop cans bottom to bottom. I can do it fairly well but not as well as I would like. In class I was using a Dynasty 300 the weld bead was prettyer than I can achieve with my 350. My bead doesn't look polished like I would like, I'm sure it is just a combination of settings. Any suggestions would be appreciated. And what are tags that you add at the bottom of the post screen?

    That's a serious machine. Have you tried to play with the setting at all? Try turning down you AC balance and go from there. Also, are you using the same filler rod that you use at school?

    If you're going to practice aluminum tig welding, practice on something 1/8" or thicker. Leave the pop can welding for later when you're completely bored with your success at welding thicker aluminum plate vertical and overhead, or pipe, with the wrong hand, in some contorted body position. At that point, playing with pop cans will actually be fun.

    AC TIG welding aluminum should not look polished like DC TIG welding stainless.
    There should be an etched zone around the weld that will look a little rough. The more DCEN you go, the less etching you will have, but also, the less cleaning action.

    Thanks for your imput. I have tried different settings, I am getting better. I started welding the cans on a challenge and now just on a mission to get better at it. It does help teach control, welding on such thin material and there is an endless supply of cans to practice on. Starting another class 9/28/10 carbon steel 4 positions.
    I just need more practice, I love to learn! Bye for now. Scott
