  • Tig rod question

    Can someone please explain to me what the deal is with the rod needing to be sharp vs round vs any other configuration. From a totally novice point of view I just see the environment being so hot that it wouldn't matter but I know you pro's actually know the answer.

    rather than try to explain tungsten shapes myself.. here is a link to a neat little Miller booklet that explains it much better than I ever could

    hope this helps
