    Default Tig Tungsten Sharpener

    There are no commercially available Tig Tungsten Sharpeners in Australia that I have seen.
    I ask my WS and tool shop guys all the time.
    I have been using a small diamond wheel on an air die grinder for a few years now. Guessing the angle has been fine up till now.
    I like different angles on my tungsten for different materials and also for weld type and available room in joint area.
    I would like a trick looking sharpener that gives consistency without thinking about it too much.
    This will be the easiest build I could think of.
    I am sure others have even better ones that they have fabbed and I hope they will post images of theirs too.
    The total cost of materials $3.00

    This sharpener will cut off contaminated electrodes.
    Sharpen to what ever angle you like.
    Looks okay and works great.
    Even if you want to change the angle no problem just get out the drill.
    If you want more electrode diameters just weld another angle on and drill it to the required diameter and angle.
    Pretty simple.

    By the looks of the 2 tungstens on the left you have a gas problem....either bad gas or not enough post flow????
