  • I was retarded tonight

    I thought some of you might get a good laugh out of my stupid rookie mistake.

    I set synchrowave up to do a little tigging after dinner. I went to spark up and nothing happened. I gave a little more pedal and finally something but it didn't look right. So I stopped and looked at tungstan and it looked like an old minning drill tip after a long days work. So my first guess was some junk was on the tip. I ground the tip and tried again. Thermal melt down again. I grabbed a fresh stick of tungstan and tried again. Same results. So I thought I forgot to open the tank valve. Nope that was open. Stumped I sat there stairing at my machine . Then I noticed I got the ground and hose connection backwards

    I never made that mistake before but I always forget turn on the gas when welding aluminum for some reason but I always turn it on for steel and stainless tho. Gotta love the stupid mistakes.
