  • proper tungsten taper & tip dia. for syncrowave 350LX

    I was just looking at the diamond ground tungsten application for some free electrode samples.I am a little confused.I have been considering trying some of their preground tungsten electrodes,but they ask for taper and tip diameter.I have no idea of what the proper taper and tip diameter would be for use with my transformer machine.In all of my years of tig welding,I really never measured these things.I just ground the electrode by eye on a bench grinder and went to work,never really experimenting with these variables.Any suggestions would be very helpful..........

      Here is the best way to go about getting your samples. Call Jim at Dimond Ground Products. Tell him what machine you are using ( Syncro 350LX ), what material you are welding, AC or DC, and he will gladly help you. As a matter of fact he will take the order for samples over the phone and you will not have to fill in the order sheet.

      Keep in mind he is on Pacific time when placing the call. I usually call around 10:30 Pacific time as he is in and out. This is a good time to catch him.
