Need a Tig Finger?


The Tig Finger works awesome. It allows you to rest your hand on your hot work piece while you are welding to keep more consistent movement. I usually use it on my torch hand so I can slide it across the work keeping the arc focused where I want it. Very well made.

-Dave Blackburn

Hi and thanks for listening to the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  This is episode 2 and the topic is Weld Tests.  We thought that since you generally start a welding job with a weld test we'd have our first topic on this podcast be just that.  We discuss welding tests we've given and tests we've taken.  We hope that for the experienced weldors you can relate to our stories, and for the new guys you get a better feel for what's to come at your first test.  Below you will find the times for this podcast and other information.  Thanks again and enjoy!

Need a Stubby Gas Lens Kit?
 
"Want to shrink your 17/26 torch down to a manageable size and still maintain great gas coverage? I highly recommend a Stubby Gas Lens Kit from weldmonger.com. Before I was using the giant gas lens' and while that is fine for some projects I was running into projects where the standard set up was not fitting inside a part of was just cumbersome to use. The Stubby Gas Lens Kit shrinks the 17/26 torch down to a usable size. These are also a gas lens so you will get better coverage over a standard cup." -Jonathan Lewis
