    It is nice to control the heat and the puddle size, but it's a lot easier to leave cold spots....so you've got to know what you're looking at when watching the puddle(which you obviously do). You can still control heat without pumping the pedal, it's just a matter of gradually letting off the amps and/or speeding up as you go.


    I've got a DX and I love it. I think you'd be fine without it. I do use it occasionally when I'm working on stainless, but even then it's not really "necessary". Here's an article on Miller's site explaining a company that DID benefit from it: http://www.millerwelds.com/resources/articles/Dynasty-200-Pulsed-TIG-GTAW-welding-exhaust/

    Hi Guys....my first post here after being linked to Bass killer build thread. Here is some of the work I do from Down Under.

    By no means do I believe I am up to the standard of some on here, but like others, striving to improve puts it lightly.

    For some reason welding cast steel or aluminium just turns out really well for me....well I think so anyway, not sure what it is.

    The last two have to some of my favourites!!

    Cheers,
    Ariel

    Your unfortunately right.....shows should have a class for best fabrication along with best paint to show the real quality of the work involved not just what's used to cover it up. Again, unfortunately it makes a lot of fabricators look good

    Very nice work. I don't get to stick weld nearly as much as I'd like too.

    Some aluminum.

    The following is: First pass lay wire walking the cup, 2nd pass dipping rod walking the cup consistent amps, 3rd pass(bottom 2 pics) freehand, dipping filler, slight pedal pulse.

    A verticle 3G groove weld, open root full penetration Tig weld on 1/4" plate.

    One of the projects we demo to our apprentices.

    This is the cap side, as welded, not brushed to make it shine.

    I can get a pic of the root pass, don't have one handy.
    It is a 3 pass weld, root, fill and cap.

    The root pass, again as welded with a small bit of oxides on it from the heat of the next pass.

    Also another of the projects we teach. A 2G horizontal groove weld also on 1/4" plate. Again a full penetration weld with root fill and cap.

    This has been wire brushed and the cap pass was done using one pass rather that the typical stringers you often see on a horizontal weld.

    Incredible welds can also be on small and or difficult to weld things, things that can't be easily replaced or duplicated.

    While this piece is OT, it is on topic of welding.

    A fellow from a different department of the college came to me with the hammer from an 1800s black powder percussion gun.

    The thumb tang for cocking the weapon was broken off.


    It is a type of cast, and very dirty at that. being small is another part that made it difficult.

    The break was not cleanly defined as a non welding method of repair had been attempted first and it was lightly filed before an attempt was made to use some sort of epoxy on it.

    Using the Tig, I first tacked it together, then ground a very small groove all around it with a thin disc.

    After that I took a SMAW NIckle cast iron filler rod and broke the coating off of it.

    Polished up the wire with emery cloth to clean it for Tig and proceeded to weld the tang back in place.

    A wire brush job while it was hot helped to blend the color from heating.
