    For the TIG beginner, this is a pretty good video to get one's feet wet in the terminology and technology. The car guy did a good job asking for clarification and getting additional information what most common viewers might ask. I like how the green was really prominent but I think he understated just how important some of the features of the 185 are as the 185 has a remarkable range for AC balance and frequency for its price point. People love to see welds and welding. I was a bit disappointed he didn't show either in this video. I suspect he'll get into those in the next two(?) in this series. Oh, he inaccurately stated the 185 can be used for stick welding. Not sure if this will affect anyone. Look forward to seeing more!
    Is it OK to want to break something just so that you can weld it back together?

    I agree with you .. but it will be 2 more videos coming up with actual welding

    Of course it could be used for stick welding. Any constant current power source can be. It just doesn't come equipped for it, so you would have to do a few things to make it happen. But if was the only machine you had, and you needed to stick weld, you could.

    Welding voltages wouldn't be optimal. Stick voltages should be higher than the voltages you would use to TIG.

    He sounds like he's teaching a kindergarden class. I like Jody Collier's videos much more.

    I would agree, but I think this is aimed at total n00bs. I'll wait and see what happens in the next one.

    This is constant current, voltage is a function of arc length, the operator has control over the actual welding voltage and it will vary depending on technique. Hook up a volt meter and watch or video it while you're stick welding and have a look. With generator welders or drooping transformer welders you even have some control over current by manipulating the stick, something that inverters have to simulate with software. It's nice to have, but not required. Hell, many trailside repair welds have been made with a couple of car batteries and some cables. It's all about run what you brung.

    Eric is the mechanic and it was mostly done for his YouTube channel EricTheCarGuy. MOST of Eric's audiences never TIGed before

    Actually, according to our demographic information provided by youtube., the viewership on welding drops off significantly after only a few seconds. Most of the time it peaks during a discussion of "how to" and the actual results of the weld for a 4-5 seconds before sliding back off. Only thing I can figure is that it gets repetitive after about 10 seconds or so. The best Idea is to have a blend.

The voice volume was a bit hit and miss - like it was in the first video too. I can see the guidance about the HF starts confusing people too. Touch but don't touch. I can see viewers wanting to see the next one for tips on adding filler.

    If the machine has HF there's no reason to touch the tungsten to your work... at least he didn't have the guy practice turning the knob this time.

    If I ever need to teach a five year old, or maybe an 85 year old, I know where to send them. I couldn't watch more than half way this time. I guess some people might need that level of instruction, but then again, some people just shouldn't weld.

    Granted, the first one was pretty hard to watch. As Zoama585 noted, that turning the knob thing was a bit much .... LOL.

    I can see car newbies watching this one, though.

    Jody's videos are far better and pretty easy to watch and even newbies can appreciate what he's trying to get across.

    Virtually all the TIG Time videos are like that. You really have to crank them up, then be ready to turn them down before the loud music.

    I don't know about that. at least car guys have turned some wrenches and should be a little shop savvy. This seems to be aimed more for the garden club.

    My fiancé picked up basic TIG welding faster than that with absolutely no experience of anything remotely related.

    I just watched Parts 1 and 2. Yes, they are very basic, very beginner based, but they still help our hobby/craft. A different approach than Jody (I do prefer Jody's approach-straight forward and not like he's teaching a high school class) has but as said a different demographic most likely. I have a feeling that Mr. TIGs videos like this will sell a lot of 185 machines just the same as Jody's videos of the 250 EX has sold a lot of those machines. I'm in the market for an Everlast TIG (waiting on the 210 EXT before deciding on the model) but after seeing these videos along with Jody's it makes me wonder if I need all "those knobs" or just a basic machine such as this although I usually overbuy so I'm good for any future skill sets.

    Thanks for posting them. When will Part 3 come out?

    I completely agree about the car guy comment. A car guy would have been offended by the first video. At least the second video talks about puddle control as opposed to jumping right in and adding filler. I'm still disturbed about his HF start comments. Almost like he is mixing lift starts with HF starts. Hopefully he can do more with his 20 minutes in the last one.

    Your fiancee sounds like a great person. Hang on to her tight!

    The Basis behind this video sequence is in fact to target the audience that has no prior knowledge or experience with Tig welding and in fact very little experience with Welding period.

    To this end it needs to be a very simple basic understanding that for most of us here would be difficult to watch .
    I can see the value as i do have people who come to see me that have no prior understanding or knowledge , However i have to agree with the comments made with the initiating of the Arc with the Lift process that is shown in the Video , this is a little baffling for me and i do not really understand why it is shown this way .

    I'm sorry, but your only welding experience could be watching Jennifer Beals in Flashdance and that video would still be difficult to watch. S/F....Ken M
