Thanks!

I've never knew to look a the end of the filler rod for balling, but it makes perfect sense.

I'd noticed that larger cups work better with aluminum, but I still need to get #23 into my head. I don't quite understand why larger stickouts increase heat.

The only thing I have a problem with, is that everything I've been told, and seen regarding tungsten taper and how it affects heat concentration is exactly backwards from what this says.

yeah, the Miller site says the opposite about taper at least. I'd like to see this proven!


Great links, rhett! thanks.
