How To TIG Weld, plus Tips and Tricks

How to TIG Weld

Now that you've purchased a TIG welder, we'd like to give you some tips so you can be stacking dimes on your first project. This video will walk you through the basic steps while showing you some tricks so you can weld with confidence from the start.

To begin welding, make sure you have all of the proper safety gear like a welding helmet, jacket and gloves as well as a cart to secure your welder and gas bottle, which must be secured in a cart. And don't forget a heavy duty welder extension cord if you don't have an outlet near your project. A tungsten grinder is a must-have for sharpening tungstens to a perfect angle without contamination so you get the best welds. Stitch weld magnets are awesome for holding sheet metal patches in place and a welding table is a great place to work on small projects. And don't forget a consumables kit and extra tungstens and filler rods - nothing is worse than being in the middle of a project and running out of filler rods!
