    Sometimes i think the tung becomes magnetic at times because my filler rod gets pulled into the tung.

        thats a good thing when doing out of position. helps you keep the pudle where you want it, learn to work with it rather than fight it.
        thanks for the help

        summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

          Thanks for all the advice. I have improved a lot since I posted the first message. Over here they only sell either pure or the red tung. I've tried welding aluminum with the red one sharpening it and making a very small flat at the point and got a nice pattern of beads or scales. I think the rest is practice and more practice.

          Happy Holidays to you all.

            give these guys a try, http://stores.ebay.com/Tungsten-Direct

            and be extra careful with the red (thorated) tungsten. its the nasty-est of the bunch. last thing i need is to worry about radioactive dust. some of the old-school guys swear by it, but there are too many other great options for me to mess with it.
            keep in mind you should take proper care when handling any of the tungsten. the thorated is just the only one thats radio active and should be ground in a closed grinder to keep the particles captured.
            have a great X-Mas

            i know there is nothing listed now but i think he is just taking the holiday off. as he was still selling yesterday.
