    My First TIG Bead!

    I had bought a Miller Econotig about two weeks ago. GREAT price! Last week, I used my 210 to build it a welding cart. As all it had when bought was the stick stinger, I had to order torch and stuff. All that came in, and tonight, I ran my first TIG bead. It was clumsy, and the mistakes were obvious.
    -Welded 3/8" steel. Not 'sposed to weld more than 1/4".
    -Didn't let the initial puddle heat enough.
    -Let up too fast on the end.

    But, heck, it was my first bead, with no help except YouTube.

    TIG ROCKS! Way neater than MIG. Neater than torch.

    When I get back from my road trip, I test the stick functions.
Working...
