I ran across this "tips and tricks" website the other day and thought I'd share.

Great "no bull" advice from a guy who sure sounds like he knows what he's talking about.

Advice on stick, mig, tig, aluminum, stainless.

Check it out

It really is a great site.

One thing I found very useful was his "noobie mistakes" section.

He said that the instructions on most welders call for far too little tungsten electrode protrusion. I took his advice and poked my tungsten out a bit more than recommended, so I could see it just as he recommended. Wow, tig sure got a lot easier with just that advice.

Also, he recommends shielding argon on the back side of stainless welds to prevent what he calls "sguaring." I haven't tried his fix yet, but I've had the problem.

Just the part about the right gloves for tig so you can feel the filler rod. What a difference a little thing like that made.

There is nothing like advice from someone who walks the walk.

That is a very nice site and very resourceful and straight forward.

I'm relatively new to the art of welding. When I first started reading up about the topic, that site proved to have to most information in one site. I recommend it, as well.

There are some great videos there too. First practical explanation I've seen for "walking the cup."

Shows a guy doing an incredible tig weld on a huge stainless cylinder.

Not only are the videos good but the guy in the videos, Jody Collier, is very helpful. He's the one that pointed me towards longevity when I asked him to suggest an affordable tig welder.
