    Default weld on mcCormick CAN!!!!

    I tried a dynasty 350 welder to try to tig it . it will work fine on 5 amps and 1/16"rod . The weld did not sink or burn through. Is there any applications for tig welding metal that small?

    I previously tried the same thing with a thermal arc welder which bottoms out at 12 amps. the result is that the weld sunk. i looked back on the other side, it had no burn through but pushed through!!!!!!!

    Yea applications are out there. I have had a few, A 4-wheeler gas tank was so thin I had to let it burn back to have some thickness to start on.

    Oil tank cover on a bike. Mower muffler. It helps to have smaller filler wire. 1/16 can make you use more heat. I have used some .030 mig wire when needed.
