On Pirate there was a company looking to hire, anyway one of their requirements was being able to "walk the cup" with a TIG. The method was explained later on as setting your electrode stick out just right and setting the cup on the base material. Thus allowing you to get a more consistent bead. Here is my question. How the hell do you do this? Anyway I think about it sounds like a bad idea to me. When I TIG or MIG weld I try to push the heat and fill material forward. So I angle the TIG torch down the path of the weld and push the heat. Then I fill from the opposite side. Now if you set the cup on the weld area I can't see how it would work. You'd either have to drag the torch across the weld and then be heating back into the weld rather than melting the base material as you need to for filling. But if you push the weld you would be riding on top of your weld bead. If you wanted to swirl the torch you would just hit the weld bead all the time and be very inconsistent. Or you would constantly be pushing the torch through very hot if not still molten weld. Am I thinking wrong about this?
