        If I had that stead of a hand at 19 years old I could have been a surgeon. That is nice.

            o and i did that all walking the cup no free hand. i dont like sloppy welds. and would create more of a chance for pin holes.

              Those pics look nice. I have to use 1/2" ferrules and they almost can't be walked since the flange warping would be crazy. On my maxstar 150, I run 57+/- amps pulsing @ 60 free hand, and if I were to walk it with a 3" long ferrule, I would have a bigger HAZ then that, and a solid red weld when finished.

                Just because you freehand doesn't mean the welds are gonna be sloppy. I can weld either way and would challenge most either way. Now show us the outside of that weld.

                  its unusual to here about ferrules warping we order parts from dixon and i think there roughly 1.25 wide and weldrings are a lil over .25 of an inch. we never have a problem with warping. ill look at the ones we use and get part numbers.

                        Those are 1/2" ferrules, if you run 55 amps walking it, you will warp the crap out of it, even only taking 1 minute to weld it, hand rolling it. Free handing a 2" OD pipe with 57 amps pulsing on a 1/2" ferrule is still hot. When I walk it, I would run a max of 42.

                        The first picture you show a 3" long ferrule which is a lot easier to run, and keep straight.

                        What size pipe are you welding?

                          Are you rolling that pipe out, or is it in position. Cause they look like orbital welds to me.

                            if you look at the first pic you can see his tacks were hot and bottom looks like it sank a little. purge is low weld is smokey needs to be light pastel or no color. crank your purge up you can run hotter = faster. put a defuser lense on your torch and youll be good to go.

                              Very true. Maybe it's just the the way he learned. I've worked with a handful of guys that were very good TIG welders free hand. Of those maybe 2 could walk the cup. The others probably could too, but they just never learned the method.
