Mig like Tig
This thread is about making MIG look TIG, or really nice looking mig welds.
I am going to try something.
ONLY POST IF YOU HAVE A PICTURE OF YOUR OWN WORK.
The point is we want to SEE your attempt.
I am going to try to master this too.
Here is my picture. It aint like ZTfabs, but it was about 200 feet of weld.
WFS 330 of .035, about 20 volts C/25. This is 3/16" square tubing so there is a natural perfect fit up. I should have been at around 200 amps.
Horizontal, making circles going up on the forward stroke. First pass on clean bare steal, second pass down through the puddle. I turn the heat WAY UP to do this. 200 amps on 3/16" horizontal groove.
Here is a link to another thread
Nothing discussed here but Mig welds.
edit: Mig gun was held straight in the joint.
Real world weldin.
When I grow up I want to be a tig weldor.
