    ARE you grinding the tung to a clean point and reverse zapping a ball?

      I've heard of doing that but never tried it. I just grind it to a sharp point then barely touch the tip to the sander to knock the point off very slightly.

        Just to clarify for others: Ball a green tungsten. Actually, it will ball itself in an inch or so.

        All(?) others are ground to a point (and truncated) and will hold that point while welding.
