  • Tungten Taper

    After 12 years of grinding my tungsten electrodes on my sander I purchased a Sharpie deluxe from the Arc-zone. This little hand held grinder seems to work fairly well. It's easy to adjust the taper, but how do you actually measure the taper?? My old method was grind the taper 2 to 2 1/2 times the diameter of electrode. I have read about using 20 & 30 degree tapers for different low and high amperage settings.

    Thanks Pete

    If you need to know the exact degree pick up an adjustable protractor from Sears or a General from your local hardware store. Prob about 10 or 12 bucks...Bob
