Cool, you can make some pretty welds with argon mix. Im betting the LCA above was welded with 75/25.

Nice TIG welding. What is that you are building? Can't quite make out what it is going to be. How about a shot of it from the other side, and an overall pic of it too? Or maybe a completed pic if you have gotten that far yet.

Thanks. I'm afraid to look at your build thread because your truck is gonna make me go into more debt. Everytime it shows up, I catch myself looking through it and drooling. Your pick 'em up is my favorite truck on here. Hell, I don't even like the SWB color, but it looks real swell on your truck.
Keep posting pics of your welds. We all gotta start somewhere. Fortunately, I had an AG teacher in high school who was a DAMN good welder. He let me be his helper on side work from time to time, starting when I was 14. That's where I learned torun TIG & SMAW(stick). Didn't start mig & flux 'til I was 19, and let me tell you, it looked like SHIT! Started spray arc at 20, that's some fun stuff. I do it at home every chance I get. Quite a bit of spray arc on my bumper.[IMG][/IMG]

Thanks. I find TIG to be the easiest flavor of welding. I'm in TOTAL control of heat, travel speed, and wire feed. I LOVE it. DC aluminum kinda sucks balls though

That's one thing I LOVE about spray arc. It welds through scale very well

Yup, built the bumper from scratch. Probably $150ish in paint and materials. And $5k ish in welding equipment.
Wrap the corners to ensure a good seal weeld on the first pic.
Slow down on bottom, then speed up when pushing the puddle up and carrying it back to go low again in the second pic.
The last pic, you almost got it! Just watch the puddle, and try to keep it nice and rounded on the backside.
The weld in the first pic actually looks really good. I'm just real OCD about some things, including wrapping corners. Your welds look MUCH better than my first MIG welds.
Keep up the good work. This shit is addictive. I can't bring myself to buy armor, since I can just build it

Bumper I built for my last truck. Really shitty pic/angle. 5" sch 80. Most pipe bumpers use 4" sch 40. I've destroyed 3 peoples Ranch Hand bumpers with my vehicles. 4" Sch 40 is pu$$y $h! t for the primary striking point of a bumper.
