  • Quite honestly, there is no reason that this setup should not work. a stinger is just a way to grip an electrode and transfer current. I have an older tig torch that I really don't care if anything happens to it, so I will try this for chits and giggles, but I really don't see how it will damage the...

    replied to Lets see some beads
    here's a couple of some welds done using an Argon/Hydrogen blend. the hydrogen produces a reducing atmosphere that helps reduce the oxidation to pretty much zero. increases fluidity, faster travel speed, lower heat affected zone, etc....

    replied to S.s Mig ?
    I found an older picture on my computer of a tig weld done with 2% Hydrogen on 316 plate. notice the heat affected zone is pretty small compared to those of argon welds. I did a 'speed' test with an outside corner weld on 3/16 ss plate, no filler, 20 seconds of arc/travel time. The pure argon got me...

    replied to S.s Mig ?
    Just a little clarification....while the 'best' gas for welding stainless is a 90/7.5/2.5 blend, this is true for short arc only. for higher voltages and thicker materials, blends like 90%AR/8%CO2/2%O2, and for pulse welding, 66.1%AR/33%He/.9%CO2 work very well.
    As for Tig stainless, look into...

    replied to Grinder Discs
    differences

    One of the things to look at when picking up grinding discs is the amount of grinding material as opposed to the amount of filler that they use.....
    I took a couple of discs off our shelf and took a couple of pics. Picture one is a side by side comparison of two grinding...

    replied to Red V350 Pro and LN742
    you can't go wrong with that package. The LN742 is a great feeder, and with the digital readouts, easy to set up. The V-350Pro is an icredible little machine. runs on any voltge except 110. incredible control of the arc in stick and mig modes, and can be used for gouging without really "hurting"...

    grab a coffee....

    This might turn out to be a long reply, so just prepping everyone ahead of time.

    :note: the following is taken from the welding aluminum theory and practice book second edition.

    replied to Why am I getting cracks?
    2 cents....

    Just a quick observation leading to a guess.....looking at the first pic, I would guess that the crack started at the crater. At the end of a weld, especially in aluminum, the crater needs to be filled at the end of a weld. This is where 95% of the cracks in an aluminum weld...

    replied to weird question
    Possible? Yes
    Smart? No

    While it is possible to hook up a carbon arc torch to this machine, I definitely don't recommend it. the hardest thing on a welding machine (any welding machine) is gouging. creating dead shorts as frequently as gouging does will greatly shorten the life...

    machine type?

    If you could post a manufacturer of the machine with maybe a model or serial number, I might be able to help. sounds like the connector is a mini dinse. with the price of tig torches coming down with the major suppliers competing against each other, you should be able to...
