Also are you welding flat like that? Try putting your material propped up and like a "v" so the puddle can stay centered and not try to fall down. Think about gravity.
Yea, I thought about it, but the assignment was a flat lap joint. I was just trying it flat to see if I could do it. I was going to crush it today, but ran out of time.

1/8" filler is way too big, atleast for me on 1/8" material. I personally weld aluminum hot and fast. Crank the amps and dip as fast as i can go. Just angle your tungsten so your puddle is evenly distributed between material and go at it.

Wow... Scubydrew and Senza Pari, just wanted to say your work is very inspirational... Absolutely beautiful welding/fabrication. I hope one day I can come close to your skill levels. Mad Props! Also huge fan of Agtronics...

Anyways, Here is some of my work. Again doesn't even come close to many of yours. Granted I am not a full time welder, just really enjoy fabricating car parts of my own and TIG welding... I'm fairly new at it and wish I had much more experience doing this. Dream job would be to work at a motorsports fab shop of some sort or open my own one day... Any tips would be much appreciated!

Here are some random pics I took that I thought were a little different from the norm but looked cool.

Wow, Thanks dude! Really appreciate the kind words... I try my best, as long as I feel like I'm improving and teaching myself something new to get better I am really happy with how I'm doing
BTW your work looks very impressive also! That intake manifold looks pretty bad ass!

Def give yourself some more credit ^^ You really look like you got the hang of stainless. Are you pulsing on those?

I do have a question for you guys with alot of experience. I have been tigging for about a year, would really like to find a job where I can be tigging on a daily basis. Would you recommend going to a welding school? As of now I am 100% self taught and just weld car stuff on the side, considering going to a school to get certified now though. What do you all think?

Heres some of my stuff to keep with the thread topic

Thank ya again!
Most of the time on stainless tubing I pulse manually even though the machine has a pulser... I do not pulse on aluminum and sometimes on non tubing stainless depends on my mood I also do not pulse, just control the puddle with movement.
