    Default Stainless welds

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

    Default 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.

    Default 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!
