        Stainless welds

        Here are a couple I have done. Nature of the business-I can't load more it would give the project away.

          more

          more stainless, I had to crop some of the project out and resize so it made some pics a little fuzzy. These are from a "canned" accu-curve program in the Axcess machine.

            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.

              Here are a couple of my practice beads, I have only a been tig welding for about a month. The stainless is some 1/8 scrap with 308L filler I got from a machine shop and the aluminum is some 1/16 6061 with 5356 filler. The T-Fillet weld looks slightly "Sandy" but it is because of the weld I ran on the backside.

                TIG welds

                Aluminum is a blast isn't it. Your welds are looking good. It has always amazed me how 1/2 way through a weld you have to back off a little or the puddle gets to large. I know it is the heat and I understand the thermal dynamics of the weld. It's just so cool, welding a awesome!

                    You are using a spool gun, not tig, right?

                            Good gas coverage and not too much heat for the rainbow effect, but a good weld should probably not even be discolored...IMO, Paul
