    I can honestly say I can match that guy on his tig welds. But, I do allot of tig for the shipyard for the Navy, so thats what I can also attribute to being good at it, lots of pratice, and when its all said and done, thats what seperates the guys that can, and the guys that cant, practice. I can do other welding really well, like mig, and stick, etc.. but Id rather tig weld over any other type of welding. This is what my tig welds looked like when I was in school 2 years ago, and first starting out. Ive gotten allot better since then.

    Hand or Foot Control

    Thanks for the videos,I have been practicing the weave bead and I can see the concept.On the first video it appeared that the welder had the filler rod just laying in the path of the torch and was not doing any dipping at all,Am I seeing that correctely? If so it seems like a good idea.Mike

    Wow those are very nice hopefully I get that good one day. TIG takes some time to get that steady hand.

    Awesome video. The second one was cool. I would have had 100 starts and stops on that flange
