Making a Titanium Marking Knife for Woodworking
awesome! i would love to have goats! had cows as a kid. they were fun too. and thank you! i'm glad i was able to capture their nature to your trained eye! :)
Good question, i don't have any experience with TIG. my MIG seems to strike a pretty good arc. for material like this i turn the amperage down (2 of 5) and i can usually get a pretty good arc without burning thru. that allows me to feed in enough wire to get a good connection. grounding is is key, i usually try to clamp the ground right to the work piece when possible (rather than just the bench). rusty materials are hard to strike too. double check the ground and the little copper nozzle wire feeds thru. that might help
the breaker in the panel in the house. i don't think i've ever hit the max on the welder itself. i don't do much heavy material. that might be why. or that my 15A breaker can't take it to the point where the welder trips. not sure why you're tripping it... is it just on long, heavy welds?
i'm honored! hope to see some of your work! thank you!
thanks! I've never noticed a difference with wire diameters. I tend to trip the breaker only when running at the highest amperage setting or when I run continuously and overheat it. What amperage is the circuit that you're connected to? Mines on a 15 amp circuit but it's the only that that's on that line.
haha! great movie!!
Thank you! I'm honored!
hi! thanks! i think it's way more"blue" in the photo than it was in real life. i was pretty "silver" in person, might have been a reflection that made it blue. to get a blue like that you can heat up the piece with a propane torch slightly, it'll turn blue (but then gray with too much heat)
