Well as I have stated before I am not a weldor or a fabracator. In my youth I turned wrenchs at a Dodge dealer, drove an 18 wheeler for couple years and finally hired on with MA BELL for 32 years. So this is my first dance with tig machine. I can see there is quite a learning curve. Here are some pics of first beads if you could call them that with econo-tig that I picked up on the cheap. I also learned you need to wear long sleeves when tig welding. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!
