  • TIG's roasting my fingers

    I'm getting much better at watching the puddle and throttling the arc, not there yet but getting better!

    But I'm roasting my fingers! I know I'm holding the torch too close to the tip on the right side and I still can't feed the rod smoothly on the left so my beads end where I can't hold it anymore. I'm laughing about it cuz I know I'm just dumb but I thought other beginners might enjoy my plight.

    The good news is I'm getting better!
