  • Well Charlie...best part of learning something is that things get easier from there on in. Something about those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it? I hope on some level, you see things clearer as the battle rages on. And when it come to GTAW Aluminum a great battle wages. Not everyone...

  • Isn't anyone the least bit curious to ask, what the heck are you building out of 1 " thick aluminum? Because I'm curious? Curious George the monkey curious? With GTAW? I'm all ears and eyes?

    So...I did a few inches and stopped. Honestly...I was nervous. It had been a while and I was worried I'd make a mess. Took a breath, repositioned and carried on. Did a second one. Third one I touched, the torch cable snagged, quick puff but pushed it through to the end. I posted the tungsten and location....

    I was going to post a picture of the conditions...that isn't happening. Bad enough I'm posting the pushing of boundaries, bad habits and not following how things should be done, I'm not showing the mess as well. Suffice to say it's cramped and crowded. But I got things tacked up. Just for the record,...

    started a topic One rod challenge.

    One rod challenge.

    There has been a lot of talk regarding GTAW on Aluminum. On one of those occasions, It was asked about how often a guy ends up sharpening his Tungsten. Not having actually used the process in a while, I said I'd give it a go and post the results.

    As you can see by the dust on the helmet,...

    If it's a new machine, I wouldn't throw in the towel on it. Could be a factory preset program thing going on and looking for an automatic software update the minute it sensed power? I have no idea?
    I'm sure reading deeper into that manual or calling tech support will provide some clarity and answers?...

    Glad to hear things have improved and you are up and running. I'm sure the compressed air solution was of benefit on some level. Mine is over due for a cover off cleaning. I'm sure the larger tungsten has made a difference. If you think of how the balled end is an emitter, the shielding gas and electrical...

  • What the heck Charlie? I'm telling you, I'm disappointed. That's a real bummer you up and calling it a wrap. You getting some really nice results is all fine an good, but what about showing us? Telling us how? What did you discover? What made the difference?
    Give me something? Anything...?...

    And if someone comes along and say Nope, your wrong, this is how it works and why...I'm ok with that.

    The power source has two terminals. if it was important enough for them to specify what to hook up where, I would think it would make a difference in how it's connected even when then switched to AC? Are you saying with certainty it doesn't? I'm not saying it does or doesn't, I was ruling out possibilities....

    Well, as the owner of a seldom used Syncrowave 250 I'm interested maybe more then most to discover what has gone wrong?
    I'm no substitute for the expert advice you've been given, and from what I've read, I'm not sure anything I have to offer would be of much value or was besides a cursory check?

    I know this may sound like a dumb question to ask, but is there a chance you have your torch connected to the wrong terminal? It should be connected to the negative, work clamp to the positive. In reverse things would be backwards? Just a thought? Although they are both red, the one under the gas valve...

  • Well Georgie...don't let that stop you from having a good time. Because if you figured that out, the rest should follow from the information I posted, others have provided, and you will eventually make sense of in trying to make it work.

  • Ok. We can get you through this. I'm assuming you will remove what you have attached to the L-Tec? Looking at it again in the picture, and thinking I may have mixed your gas and water line color. My bad. Let's try again.

    You will need plug ends for the Dynasty. Presently the power cables

  • On the front of the Dynasty left side is located three ports. Top is where the torch plugs in, bottom is for the work clamp, middle is gas supply. Not that I can tell easily from the pictures you posted what you have to work with, but if I had to guess further, Id say you need a new end for the power...

    Will probably work just note the gas supply has to be disconnected from the dinse plug and screwed into the gas out let. I would cap and tape the other connections to...

  • Gas goes in the back, and gas comes out the front. Not sure what you have for a torch set up so maybe? Maybe not?

  • You could...but it isn't advisable. It's assumed your welding Aluminum with AC. Lift arc "could" lead to contamination, material and tungsten. High frequency for non touch starts on Aluminum is preferred. However, you have a very fancy power source.

    I'm going to make a suggestion....
