  • Theading TIG rod thought fingers

    Do you thread TIG filler rod through your fingers before pushing its end into the weld puddle? I thread the rod through my fingers as I push its end into the puddle, not before.

        Video does not show feeding rod into the weld puddle.

          Not really sure how you can say that's a dumb YouTube video. This guy went out of his way to help you with a question you had and your response is its a "dumb" YouTube video? Well, go ahead and ask another question then and see how much help you get.

            Gee Bruce.... how about you show us the "SMART" method..... as you perceive it...??

            will say you leave a distinctive first impression...

            you are too smart to seek our advice anyway....

              There is no 'SMART' way to do anything (the burn marks on my body will prove that), I was just asking how people feed TIG rod.

              Oh by the way i have been welding 43 years and have passed 21 weld certs (GMAW Aluminum & steel, SAW steel, SMAW steel, GTAW steel & aluminum & DC GTAW aluminum) (DOT, ASME, BCA-5962, MIL-STD-1595A, 2219/8611, 8604/2219, 248D & AWS D1.1, D1.2 & D1.3) and was W-06-01-003 REV C Visual Weld InspectIon trained'. The best one was DC GTAW on .500' 5052 aluminum (no preheating, 4043 filler rod, Sycrowave 250, 40CFH Helium).

              So I guess your right about not seeking advice, but I am willing to learn anything new, as things do change and help if I can.

                I wonder if someone makes a rod dispenser? Im kinda thinking like how a hot glue dispenses glue. I'm no expert but I do like to think outside the box

                        You might be surprised at the depth of experience on this board...

                        I have only been TIG welding since 1968...

                        But there are some Truly Experienced and Expert members here that manage to chime in and help others without being wise guys..... some much younger than us but display a mastery of the art that is amazing

                        Pretty much a level playing field here... Without anybody pretending to be the big dog....

                        With that in mind welcome aboard.....
