    Default Chem-Sharp

    HAWK or ???,

    Does anyone have an online source for Chem Sharp? BRWelder.com does not carry it and I have not seen it listed anywhere else.

    Hoping my Dynasty 200DX and Spectrum 625 get delivered tomorrow!

    Got the Optrel Satellite last week - WOW.

    Flat-out,

    Weld Shield Products: Chemical Sharpener for Tungsten Points
    KCI, Inc.

    704-372-8435

    Give them a call. I'm sure they can locate a dealer or sell direct.
    It's not the most popular stuff in the world and takes some trial and error to get it right. I pretty much use it for most applications on the Dynasty.

    The Dynasty has a short circuit protection built in. Extend your tungsten and inch or so beyond the cup. create your arc: "lift arc" or Hi Freq and when the tungsten turns cherry red dip the end(3/8") or less into the chemical sharpener. It will begin to burn hotter and start to point. Gently continue dipping the end in and out of the powder(chem sharp) and rotate it to achieve the desired point. If you stick the tungsten too deep, you will have nothing left. It's kinda like watching a racoon trying to wash a sugar cube. Too much washing and it's gone.

    Sharpens Tungstens without Grinding, Splintering, Flat Spots or Ridges.

    Pointing Tungsten electrodes using the Tig torch as a heat source.

    Proceedure: Extend Tungsten stick out approx. 1" beyond the shield cup. Short out Tungsten against grounded work piece until it glows cherry red about 3/8" up from the tip. Quickly immerse the heated Tungsten approximately 1/4" deep into the powder, repeatedly, until the desired point is formed.

    5 oz. (142gr.) Jar contains enough for up to 500 sharpenings.

    Default Chem Sharp and BRWelder savings

    Garcia,

    Thanks. My local shop can get it for $10 (regularly $17) so I'll probably just do that. I've saved so much online that I DO want to spend some money locally occasionally. It wasn't clear to me which items weldingdirect.com didn't charge shipping for.

    All told I have have saved about $1800 off of list (about 30%)and taxes by going w/ BRWelder.com for my recent purchases. The only thing that hasn't arrived is the contractor's kit.

    congrats on the new equipment... you will get years of fun and productivity out of them... not to mention the "win new friends and amaze the neighbors" factor... you got a well rounded combination of good equipment...
    btw.. if the kit does not arrive in a timely fashion.. do not hesitate to email or call Bob at B&R he is a good guy but very busy in a small shop (is how the good prices happen)... and sometimes things do slip through the cracks...
    good luck

    H80N,

    Thanks. You guys will be amazed, I think, when I send some pix of my house projects (months from now). Believe me, I have called bob many times to see if he had tracking numbers. Turns out he already shipped the last item (contractor's kit) and it will be here Monday.

    H80N,

    No. Thanks for the advice and sorry for not responding. Much of that stuff will not work for my project, but I can definitely see it working for other stuff. I have checked out the LANL surplus and wasn't too impressed, but wasn't looking for stock at thge time either. I want to go to the ABQ places and see as well.

    Just in case Reliance in ABQ is too much $$, know of any good sources for 2x12 mild steel tubing (1/16, 1/8 1/4 wall) and SS all-thread?

    Would need to be shipped to SF, NM.
