    Thanks Fun.........Since you gave the Tip about scratching the tungsten before starting the tig arc, I have never blown through my thin material like I had been.
    Thanks again........you are an asset to the forum.

      glad to help, just passing on others wisdom though. cant take all the credit. thanks to all the guys here .
      What's scratching the tungsten?
      some times a tungsten will get frosted and not want to start the arc. scratching it like a match,( NO POWER ON)
      will help it to restart essayer.
      thanks for the help

        I have a Syncro 200 tig. Some times as I would depress my foot pedal nothing would happen. No HF ...nothing. I would hit the pedal again and all of a sudden it would blow a nasty black hole through my material. Now BEFORE I hit the pedal to start the arc I lightly drag the tungsten across the workpiece
        and then start as usual with no problems. Hasn't happened again. Yeah!!!!!!
        I guess the tungsten can develope a slight coating that resist the HF start.

          i have seen this problem too, the slightest touch of the tung, then the arc lights effortlessly. When it had happened in the past i thought i was seeing the dreaded dynasty high freq failure.
