  • AMP ranges for Tungsten electrodes.

    last night I blew the tip off an electrode a couple of times because the AMPS were too high. I remember seeing a chart somewhere that gave you the figures but I can not find it. Could someone help me with

    Ceriated Tungsten electrode
    Min and Max amps allowed
    for these sizes
    0.020, 0.040, 1/16, 1/8, 3/16.

    Cheers for any help,

    it is all in the Miller tig handbook which is free for download... plus a lot of other tig info that you may want to study.. here is the link.

    BTW.. for you and many others.. there is a tremendous amount of free info on this site.. it is worth your while to spend a few hours exploring, reading handbooks, articles, tips etc...

    hope this helps
