    My Breaker is a 50 amp breaker with number 6 wire. My voltage measures 251 volts when testing black to white. Or each pole is measuring 126.2v. This is at the plug, not the breaker.

    Jody on weldingtipandtricks.com was adjusting the frequency while the machine was running.

    It is usually a good practice to not adjust stuff while an arc is going. I tend to play it safe and...

    Now as far as the AC frequency you weld at... If you have ever welded aluminum before, using a AC, you hear a loud buzzing. Generally that loud buzzing is in the range of 110hz. This means that it is...

    I was thinking about getting some here and there. But they are kind of pricey for what they are. I have read that they offer a smoother gas distribution which provides a better sheild. That and you...

    AC frequency was at about 90-100hz. The balance was around 30-40% towards DCEN.

    So it sounds like my arc was just too long then and also held on for too long as well. 1/2" is pretty far for TIG...

    I was welding in a very tight area tonight. I had to use the end cap on the back side of the torch to fit the torch where it needed to be. I could not get the best angle on the torch, therefore I had...

    The foot pedal is easy. Once you get used to it, it becomes second nature. Think of it like using the brake pedal in your car.

    I started TIG with only a foot pedal and no 4T. That is how I have...

    LOL, now you see why I say people are going over board with their tungsten sharpening. You are just going to dip it anyways. As you get more practice, you get better and don't dip as much. But even...

    I thought this, but it makes me wonder because it askes for CODE# and it ALSO asks for SERIAL#. So I don't know if they are the same thing or not.

    I have a 10" disk sander. I put aluminum oxide pads on it and I grind my tungsten by hand. Takes me all of 10 seconds. I have never noticed any contamination from using that type of abrasive.
