    replied to Tungsten help...
    its the mil scale. trust me. grind it off so there is none closer than 1/2" to your weld. it should come out looking nicer and no black soot.

    replied to Oxy Acetalene bottles
    dont get the wrong impression. they had up to date tags from the local shop, and he is a buddy of mine so i checked through him and he said they were legit and he sold them to the guy i bought them from. its kind of sad that a guy would drop the price down so far on something he once worked so hard...

  • if you are going to spend more than $200 on an auto dark hood, which should be the minumum price forany one that cares about their eyesight, look into getting a miller elite. if you shopped around you could pick one up for $250. or a speedglas, they are top of the line, but after you weld with one you...

    replied to aluminum and spatter
    there is no way to stop the spatter, its like a package deal. but it should easily be removed by running a putty knife or chisel over it.

    replied to tungsten ?
    i use something called a stilo tig. it spins the tungsten just from the angle you hold it on the grinder. also try using a bench belt sander with a 120 grit belt or pad.

    replied to Angle cuts (miter)
    at the shop i work at we used a wet cut band saw, or a dewalt chopsaw with the carbide blade. they both make angled cuts so much easier than a normal abrasive blade chop saw. i think i saw a dry cut bandsaw and harbor freight for about $100 too.
