  • Anyone use Hastelloy X?

    Got a hold of a roll, thought it would be interesting to try it out. Don't know on what though

      I've paid more for titanium wire, lol. I actually got a pretty good deal on this wire, from Ebay of all places. Dude says he has 2,600 spools of it.

        I used some years ago for high heat furnace parts. If i had lots i would be welding up metal artwork out of it...Bob

          Now that would be interesting! "yea this artistic piece can withstand the heaviest corrosives on the planet and live to tell about it inside an F-22 Raptor afterburner"

              So, for filler wire of this caliber, naturally I had to wait until a very sensitive weld procedure called for it. Something with insanely strict and specific procedures to properly utilize it's extreme corrosion and heat resistance.












































              Turns out I hated having to reach for a socket when I want to switch polarities from MIG w/ 70S-6 to Flux-core on my Millermatic 211. It has two small flanged nuts that are recessed into small plastic "pockets", so you have to reach for a socket.


              So I TIG'd some wingnuts onto the back of the stock nuts. With Hastelloy-X.

              Incredibly precise jigs/fixturing to hold tight tolerances. :laugh:



              Puddle flows nice and smooth, reminds me of 304L. Now I can switch polarities quicker. I don't have a rotary positioner to chuck these up in, so bear with me.

                  As opposed to just buying a couple of wing nuts? <br />

                    Very cool that you found something worthy of that fancy wire to try it out! I love it! And now that you have shown us how to make the fine precision fixtures to do this job, I just have to make some for my MM211. 'Course without the Hastelloy mine will have far less class. :-)

                      It'll never work.

                        Nice wire, submarine for acid diving perhaps?
                        if there's a welder, there's a way

                            Did you even monitor the oxygen level of your weld fixture before you ran this? <br />
                            <br />
                            ...such a critical joint and all, I'd certainly hope so.

                              I mean as in, build a submarine to go acid diving with that wire.
