    I used the exact same lowe's handles for my project. I believe like many tool handles, they are made of ash - nice and strong wood, but not rot-resistant.

    Tig torch pot

    Another thing is that precise manipulation of the TIG torch (e.g, to carefully control arc length and torch angle) is necessary, and using a hand-operated lever-type amptrol like you're suggesting...

    Tig aluminum DC

    If the reason you're DC welding aluminum is you don't have an A/C machine, it's probably going to be a misapplication of the process and won't work that well. The DC processes are not only effective...
