    MIne look about like the onse above, but my big issue is the arc wanting to jump to one can and heat it up perfect and the other stays to cold.. a bit of torch manipulation helps though.. I've played with all sorts of settings and being that i've only played with pulsing a handfull of times i need more practice with it to get good at it.

    I will have some pics of my attemps up soon enough.. **** tonight i may even post the few i've already done.... In my "mini-lab" thread in this section there is a can to can weld in the first post the name i s "redbullhalfa$$" or something with "halfa$$" in it.

    You have to tilt the torch/arc more towards the direction of travel than normal, while keeping the filler in the leading edge of the puddle. Weave the torch, or fillet if you feel like it.

    As I mentioned in another thread.......

    the .040 tungs didn't work out too good, it caused alot of instability and wobble even burned through in a couple of places.

    ok when i did it i wish i had back gased, had a smaller tung, and smaller filler. but i did it and got a 4 day weekend out of it. i had my machine maxed and was using the pedel had a pure 3/32 tung 4043 1/8 filler my balence was in the middle (its all wrighten in german) and i think the freq was around between 175 and 200 hz and the tung was balled i dont have pics because the recovery ncoic crushed it befor i had a chance.

    Hooraaah!!! I did my first can with no holes what so ever!!! The only prep i did was take a piece of "fine" scotch brite pad (the stuff used in auto body shops) and scuffed the bottom of both cans, no wire brush, no acetone or anything else

    The settings were as follows
    Main Amperage = 20 amps
    Start Amps = 10amps (Default start time and polarity)
    Torch = 0.040 thoriated ground just slightly with a # 4 cup on a WP-9 torch
    Gas = 100% Argon at 11cfph

    Pulse Settings
    P.P.S. = 5
    Peak = 80%
    Background = 40%

    Balance = 70%
    Frequency = 67Hz - pretty low for an inverter machine IMO

    I think i could have dialed in 5-10 more amps in the main control to smooth out the "blobbed spot" that formed after I accidentally dipped and contaminated the tungsten But, instead of stopping to fix the tungsten i just kept on welding, said to myself "just said what the heck, I've burned holes in all of them so far anyway".. LOL

    Here's some pics as proof... some are a bit blurry, i suck at macro pictures HAHA (there's also a pic of some little objects that came from boredome... I cut the letter G from 1/4 inch steel with a oxy torch... not bad for me IMO )

    EDIT: I didn't take any pics, but today i used a # 3 oxy welding tip and some "alumiweld" brazing stick that i got at harbor freight Saturday and my god was that not only easy as could be, but the appearance was great too (save for the burning of the paint and discoloration of the can where the labeling is from radiant heat)

    We know you have a camera, so....... no pics; no braggin'.

    OBTW: Nice job on the Hooraaah!!! And thanks for the detailed settings, even though I can't use 'em on a Syncrowave.

    There's actually a video of a guy welding Al foil together on here. If you look up the instructional videos on the Miller website there is samples of the video and he shows how to do it. I'll try it tomorrow...
