    Your tungsten is fine. I seriously use a 3/32" tungsten for almost EVERYTHING. If I was doing super thin stuff, I might knock it down, but really the only time I would is if I was very concerned...

    I took a bit of time to make the motor plate and mounts, and got a few more of the pipes welded up inside the dash of the car. The dash is pretty crazy looking. My boss (shop owner) did all the pipe...

    I'll go ahead and say I'm against the grinding diagram in section 2. I personally grind AWAY from the rotation of the wheel. If it grabs in the configuration shown, it will try to kick that tungsten...

    It did 10.0's on just the motor. I have no clue how much it will make after it's all said and done. Depends a lot on how much boost that motor will take. Maybe we'll get a chance to put it on a...

    Not my car, but potentially street legal, although I doubt it will ever see the street. Motor did right around 800HP N/A and they ran the car that way. Owner immediately decided it was too slow and...

    The burning from magnesium is so hot, it can split the oxygen and hydrogen apart before the water gets a chance to absorb any of the heat from the burning. It will then react violently with the...

    Haha, yeah, for what you are doing, forget pure tungsten even exists. Stick to one of the alloys. That's why there are alloys to start with, they drastically increase current capacity. I personally...

    When I was using thoriated for AC and a machine stuck with 50/50 balance, I used to grind the tungsten to a fine point. Then I'd put it in the torch, and put the machine on DC+ on purpose. Then light...

    I had two hunches on your issues. One was burning through the back, and sucking air/contaminants into your base metal. Another was inadequate gas coverage. To be honest, that bubbling...

    For what it's worth, that doesn't look like a HF spark gap problem to me. It looks like HF is working and the rest of the welder isn't. The HF turns on and generates the initial arc, but the machine...
