Hi and Thank you for listening to episode 14 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  We have received a few really good emails asking for more basic Tig welding information, so why not just help the Lunch Time Learners out.  We really tried to put our learners caps on and break Tig welding down to the basics.  We all started knowing nothing and there's many of you out there in that same boat.  Hopefully you new guys can pick up a few great tips in this podcast and for the seasoned weldors we hope it will inspire you to help out that new guy at your shop learn the ropes the way someone helped you.  So download, hit play, drop your hood, and enjoy!

Hi and Thanks for listening to episode 12 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  We wanted to talk about something we feel is very important within our trade that being safety.  If you've been in the trade for any amount of time we're sure you've sat through a few boring made up safety videos.  Sometime they can be very eye opening but most of the time they're just silly, to be kind.  In this episode we talk about our experiences with safety from things that have happen to us personally or has been close by.  We can work in a very dangerous environment when we're not paying attention, so we ask if you are listening to this at work please be careful and mindful of your surroundings.  So download, pop the earbuds in (maybe just one), drop your hood, and enjoy!

Where can you find a Fupa Cup?

 

If you're thinking of buying a Fupa Cup that we had talked about head over to Weldmongerstore.com and pick up a set.  You wont be disappointing in this purchase.  I like to use a Fupa cup for all my stainless welding.  The gas flow that comes out of this cup is great!  Really helps stabilize puddle control and flow.  Again, you wont be disappointed with this purchase.  After you weld with one you'll wonder why you waited so long.   -Roy Crumrine  Crummy Welding

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.

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

If you do not have a Tig Finger in your box you don't know what you're missing. This is a tool that I use almost daily while welding.  Gives me something to prop on every time and not worry about burning up my finger or glove.  A key point of welding is being comfortable.  When your finger is burning up it's really hard to stay steady and smooth, trust me I know.  Having a Tig Finger on allows me to stay comfortable and also slides along nicely giving me that extra edge to keep my welds consistent.  I will always have a Tig Finger an arms reach away while working.  -Roy Crumrine
