    SignWave, since you cant make it as a welder maybe you can try your hand as a stand up comic, maybe we will see you on the blue collar tour.

    Next time you call somebody out you should take the time and find a little back ground information on them before you call them a lier.


    Look up Propulsion on the Motorsports Board and check out some of the parts that I manufacture and the Certifications that I hold and if you think you still have game then bring it.

    I have seen some of ^^^^ work and it is some of the nicest Ive seen. I would also agree that thicker material is a bit easier to work with.

    Here is a pic of a fused weld on a turndown on an exhaust, its .065 wall 316 tubing. The beads are a bit spaced apart but it wont hurt anything thats what happens when you get in a hurry.

    What in blazes are you talking about? do you think im dissing you? Im not. and yes you do weld far better than I do, So I dont understand why you seem to need to give me the gears.

    If a guy cant make a little joke (and it wasnt even directed at you), whats the point of even trying to make people laugh.

    I'll go post my cyberwelds joke somewhere else, Sorry to have upset you. I'll try to keep it on a professional level within your posts from this point on. I trust the remainder of your day will prove to be satisfying to your needs.

    y'know, I dont have a whole lot of experience welding and I dont mind. I dont need to brag about what I can do. I see no point in it because no matter how good I think I might be, theres always, ALWAYS someone who is better.

    Im done and I apologize to the other members here who may stumble across this post. I meant no harm.

    SignWave,

    I take offense to you insinuating that the pics that I displayed on this board is that of somebody else and not of my own work. I have no interest in entertaining this issue with you anyfurther. My Apologizes to the Board for waisting your time with this matter.

    Default Thank's all.....

    Lots of good advice here. I've been mig's & stick'n for so long it's perhaps more of a stubborn resistance thing. Tig'n will be for my own pleasure as I am lucky enough to have two other guys in the shop that can handle the work. But I am going to learn, use all your guys advice and post some results soon. I think I'm going to haul off and get me another tig and practice at home then show up some day at work and hopefully show everyone, "hey what are you guys talking about? I can tig)!

    Thanks everyone especially for the inspiration!

    I learned to TIG on an aluminum boat almost thirty years ago. My instruction went like this. Can you weld with a torch? Yes. Ok, this is the torch, this is the rod. Now do it, lol. This guy was originally hired to sweep the shop. Turns out he was school trained on aluminum and alloys. He was and still is the best I ever saw with a TIG. If you can torch weld aluminum then tigging it is easy. The rest of the tig I figured out on my own mostly by reading a lot of books. I never have gotten tig welding pipe down, but that is mostly due to a cratered wrist. I do admire the guys who do it, and a definite trick to walking it.
