    I did Weyenberg's exercises of sliding your hand smoothly with the torch off and then running the torch without filler metal to make a uniform trail on the AL That last one was very telling, but now my bead is noticeably straighter. Thanks!

    Lastly, I must say that having a TIG machine and not being able to lay down a half-way descent AL bead made me feel like a poseur

    I'm partial to Dire Straits... Knopfler... Clapton... etc.... but choose music you enjoy with a good beat

    These 3 Al TIG technique vids by Andy Weyenberg might help you too

    After Weyenberg's exercises. Bead is a bit straighter and not grainy.
