    You cannot visualize laying good beads with improperly ground tungsten??
    Or me grinding tungsten freehand with a 4 1/2" grinder?

    One thing is for sure I'm a whole bunch better at running a welder than running a computer.

    Now I see what you're saying... grinding down the electrode with your aluminum-caked grinder. Heh. I have been doing that lately.

    I have two 4 1/2" wheels, one coarse and one fine. The coarse is marked stainless and alum. I can't read the fine one, it's rubbed off. But I can push really hard on either one, without it ever loading up. The fine one is my aluminum mill. If you haven't tried either, they're worth finding. Got them at the LWS.

    Anyone ever use chemsharp? I have been using it since I was in the Navy
    (89-93) and it gives you a great point.

    Not only does it sounds dangerous (although likely no worse than breathing tungsten dust), but it doesn't sound like it will work on the newer tungsten allows... unless I'm wrong?

    Not dangerous at all, all you do is ground the tungsten til it turns red and then dip the tip of it in the chemsharp powder until you have the desired tip you want. Trust me if the Navy thought it was dangerous they would not have it.

    lol !!!!! Good one!!!! Ever read the paint they use for the bottom coat of the ships?! I'd hate to be the guys painting that!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Chemsharp is ok, works good, twirl it around the bottle, sharpens it fast, but somehow we just didn't like it. Seemed to take too much off. Maybe we just did it too long!

    They use a really wicked powdercoating on tank trucks, tanks, and stuff like that. The MSDS was like reading an encyclopedia.
