Q. I'm tring to find a steel table for TIG, so I can find the proper amps per unit wall thickness to weld with TIG. Can you help? All the tables I can find on the internet are for aluminium. (Submitted by: brent galas from Unknown)


A. A good starting spot for DC TIG steel is use the 1 amp per decimal thickness rule. Example: 1/16 steel is .062" so start the machine around 65 amps. You will have to vary this slightly based on joint configuration, stand off and travel speed.
