He, hey, we all have to start somewhere !
No I just struggle with consistency in general I'm going to try the same thing with my Lorch at home is All, latest pictures taken today in work using the parweld 1.5 aluminium 1.6 5356 rod cheap no5 stubby cup and Lenz from Amazon 2.4 zirconiated tungsten settings today where 77amps hrz 120 balance set at 21
.3 pre gas 5 seconds post traveling at a fair old lick I wire brushed some of the joints pre welding with a tiny brush and left some others as is to compare, and yes I did touch down once or twice on them
That is amazing.One pic i have got of something i was mucking about with a while ago though was this one. Cant remember if i posted it on here, might have done? Had a go at making a wood burner for the back garden out of some offcuts at work. Never got around to finishing it off though. Might do at some point though.
Forgive the whopping big gaps around the two branches though, marking out and cutting angled branches in pipes isnt my strong suit as can be seen lolView attachment 165128
Where i used to work used to be like that. In the end I was bringing in my own zirconiated tungsten (I was running a syncrowave).Work only buys 2.4 tungsten I work with what they have everything is as cheap as can be bought
Learning what I can about it while I'm there some day I hope to be on my own atm I'm using an old Miller in work that the hf doesn't work on, scratch start only. I refused to weld the drinkers yesterday on it so came in today to weld them on the parweld xt202Where i used to work used to be like that. In the end I was bringing in my own zirconiated tungsten (I was running a syncrowave).
Everytime you used to go to the cupboard for a tungsten it was like the Spanish inquisition.
Terrible place to work really but learnt a ton. Never a nice feeling, feeling sick walking into work not knowing if your boss is going to be in a bad mood that day. I wouldn't stand for it these days I'd just walk away but when you're a youngster just trying to make a living its not great.
Welding aye, best job i ever had.
LOL or my usual favourite, go to weld some stainless with a lovely newly sharpened tungsten, strike the arc and find you have forgotten to change to DC. Swear, resharpen the tungsten, put it back in and start again and find you have again forgotten to switch to DCOr amperage, check, balance check, hrz check, a ffs forgot to turn gas back on
