    Sorry about the fuzzy pictures. I was told I could weld, but suck at working a camera .

    Default Keep welding.

    Looks like a good start! Nothing to laugh at! practice, practice and practice. And when you're done practicing, practice some more!

    First at TIG, but have you used any other process? I hope the answer is yes, otherwise I'm going to have to slap you silly.

    Thanks everyone. I'm pretty good at stick and mig, but I need a little work on my 6010 roots on pipe as well as the cap on the pipe. If I do flat plate, fillet, or butt joint welds on overhead, flat, vertical, and horizontal they come out great, but on pipe there nothing to be proud of. I can lay a bead like the ones above on pipe using tig. Allot of my classmates had a real problem going from stick and mig to tig. Walking the cup with tig, just feels natural. Ill keep praticing though, because you can never be too good.

    If it makes you feel any better fun4now I sucked at mig when I first started it.
