    <sniff><sniff> I want a TIG...

    Lookin' sweet. My MIG welds on round tube to round tube look terrible. I just can't keep it all together with angle, stick out and speed all changing constantly and varying rates in 3 dimensions... /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif This is one place that the slower TIG process would really produce dramatic results (at least for me).

    I just got my new Lincoln 175 Pro. Ive been practicing with it. Ive got the fusion welds down good, but my welds with filler rod still look horrible.

    Running a TIG on Aluminum is definitely an art. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
