    tig alum

    Just got the 200PI , trying to work out the correct settings.

    Uploaded a couple of pics ,
    I tried to weld a handle that broke off an alum pot lid, 1/8th inch alum.
    It looks like a bad solder joint,

    The other is just the first beads I tried, heat was all over the place and I was melting through trying to get an idea of where to set the amps for 1/8 al.

    I fried the electrode end 4 times and broke one cup nozzle trying to get some tungsten off that melted onto it.

    There is a cheatsheet in the manual but the dial settings are called different names from the labels on the machine, a standard nomenclature would help.

    I have the argon set around 20 cfm, pre-flow and post flow are on.
    Any tips on where to set the other dials for 1/8th inch AL before i fry all my consumables. thanks.
