I know there is a lot to know and a lot of do's and don'ts when it comes to tig welding.. Especially intricate welds or very small welds.. But, thanks to @WWB and @Babboonbobo I was able to find out yesterday that I, with a great deal of practice will be able at some point to weld.. I started with not so good luck, I was told years ago when I tried it a time or two that I would be able to probably get good at it, but didn't put much effort into it.. Well yesterday our very own Babboonbobo had me up to his house for a few lessons.. By the time I left I was able to run an alright bead and two passes on a 1/8 piece of steel plate on the edge.. And to mine and I believe Bobo's surprise I might add lol as the first several efforts were not so great.. But, Mr. Bob is a good teacher, we went and got some other tungestens and a little larger holder and bingo, after just a few tries I was able to get it going.. WWB sent me this 110 unused tig welder several months ago and told me to try it out. Somebody should get some use out of it.. Well it took me awhile to get around to it. But, I bought the gas and needed supplies. I'm obviously no pro, but I think with a good deal more practice I might be able to get the hang of this.. The one thing that kind of tripped us both up was starting the arc, no foot pedal just a knob and it said to get about 1/8" away from the part and it would start. Well that wasn't the case the part had to be tapped and the tip pulled away, and once the both of us figured out how to do that, we found the welder to be quite capable of what it needs to do.. So, just another journey and still learning new things at 54 years old. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks. I may now see if there is an option to add a foot pedal to this model so I have some control over the arc.. Thanks again Mr. Bob enjoyed the lessons, the good food and as usual the company, Thank Mrs. Bob for me again and I hope we can get together again soon.. If I ever learn how to get to your place So far I know there is more than 3 ways to get there lol.
