    Hey, not a problem! I had a regulator flow tube leak on me when I got my 250EX. The tube was cross threaded and a simple remove and re-screw was the easy fix.

    Compared with Mig, Tig has an uphill learning curve. This first thing I learned is how to sharpen up Tungsten because I dipped it so often. Stick to the basics, just like anything worth while, it...

    Does your machine work? It seems like it does.
    If So! Leave the machine alone and learn how to use it properly.
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    The one that came with my 250EX in 2011 was read from the middle. I bought a Harris 350 model and it leaks. For about 50 bucks I bought an old Linde flow meter on CL and you read the ball from the...

    Clenlyness is next to godliness! I've Tig welded galvanized before. It is necessary to clean the metal down to a shiny finish and then wipe it off with a no oil residue solvent. Many use acetone,...

    Could be that you might be using the wrong type of tungsten. Pure tungsten (green band) should never be used in any kind of inverter machine. Most of the others should work fine. Also the tungsten...

    Well it depends on the flow meter. Try the middle of the ball first. I have one meter that specifies to read off the top of the ball. If you can read zero at the middle of the ball, it's the...

    i do run netwelding GSS's on my welders. The first thing I noticed is that the initial gas blast that can increase turbulence is almost gone. The other is that the restriction of gas flow is a gas...

    It has been discovered the CO2 boogers up tig welds pretty good. That is the ultra simple explanation. Argon or an Argon helium mix for some aluminum welding gives the desired results. I'm sure...

    Sounds like you came up with a good solution. I usually grab some 031 stainless safety wire wrap it around once and twist it.
