    Details

    Spot Welding in the past had primarily been done by large resistance welders but can now be achieved with your TIG welder and the Eastwood Spot Welding Kit. Spot welding is accomplished by clamping two panels together and fusing them with a number of welds sequentially-placed rather than a continuous bead to hold the panels together. This is for 2 replacement nozzles for the kit. These nozzles with 17 Size TIG Torches.

    Very hard to get consistent spot welds (Posted on 8/24/13)

    I ordered these thinking that I could use my TIG welder in stead of the MIG. With the MIG welder I get 10 out 10 plug welds that hold. To test the TIG spot welds, I took some scrap material 20G and did 20 welds at each of the 3 test amps 50, 100, 150. and from about 5 seconds to about 20. Note at the high currents I got burn though holes, and did not count those in my test. With each weld I did a physical inspection to look for heat through, and then I did a pull test. If I got a plug of metal that pulled through I consider it a pass. if the two parts just pulled apart, a fail. The best weld setting I got was very high current and a shorter time, but even then only about 5 of the welds were good. And yes I did use the spot weld clamps.

    The tips come with no guidance as to what you should set them to.

    The net is I just could not get a setting that I trusted. so it's back to drilling holes and plug welding for me. At least I know I can get consistent good welds.
