TIG Spot Weld Kit is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Product, if it just worked for my aplication I wanted so bad for this to work. I bought it to spot weld the lower and back edges of the quarter panel patch panels for my 66 GTO restoration. It worked well on the test panels on the bench but if you use any weld through primer, forget getting any of the spot welds to hold.The top panel melts before the lower one gets hot and the melting metal drops off contaminating the tungsten.. Also The legs on the first nozzle broke off the first time I tried to get them inside the plyer recess. I guess its back to plug welding with my MIG.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not able to get consistent spot welds I posted my review on the replacement tips by mistake. you can read it there. Essentially I found it very hard to get good consistent spot welds from these tips. I did a pull test over about 60 welds at different Amp and times then pulled them apart. every time I got a plug, I counted a pass, if the parts just separated, a fail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from time saving and easy to use this kit produces near perfect spot welds everytime . simple to use and has a 5 minute or less learning curve (basicly setting up your amps) i was able to rap out 100 spot welds in around 10 minutes with no grinding or clean up when done . definatly a great add on to your tig welder

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Good I was a little nervous about this set up but it works well. The settings have to be just right or it won't work. I just finished spot welding rockers on a project and it worked perfectly. You just have to get your setting right.

How much stick out should you use for the tungsten when using the spot weld kit? In other words, how close to the metal should the tungsten be? It doesn't show that in any of the pictures.

Asked by: N00b
You should use the same stick-out and have the tungsten as close to the surface as with all other TIG welding for the particular material you're working with.

About TIG Spot Weld Kit

Spot Welding in the past had primarily been done by large resistance welders but can now be achieved with your TIG welder and this Spot Welding Kit from Eastwood. 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 kit is designed to be used with Eastwood's TIG Welders as well as any other brand welder that utilizes a 17 size TIG torch.
