Yea, TIG is definitely more challenging. And alot slower. However, I like that it's slow, it gives you time to actually see what's going on. More methodical. Now if I could just get my hands steady enough and smooth enough to make nice beads, I'd be set! Laying beads on a flat plate is one thing, but trying to do even simple joints like this where you can't get super comfortable flat on the table, is even more difficult. I can't imagine doing a roll cage with TIG, I've got a LONG way before I do that, haha
Here's the last two joints for the evening, the T joint there isn't looking to bad, might need a bit more filler, it's fairly concave, but it's not undercutting. The butt joint is ok.. not looking perfect, but at least I didn't blow through anywhere
I'm starting to leave the piece in position, and work around it, getting some practice with different hand/arm/torch possitions, and even switching hands with the torch if needed. Cause on some of the joints for the furniture, it's not going to be practical to move the piece around alot.
Post up your practice stuff
