Which Tungsten Should I Use? Try Blue Demon's Combo Pack!

Choosing tungsten can be tricky. Tungsten performance relies on a couple different things including whether you are running AC or DC, your amperage, and how you start the arc (i.e. scratch start, high freq, etc), but luckily Blue Demon came in to save the day with their "Tungsten Combo Pack".

What is Plasma Arc Welding?

Plasma arc welding is a welding technique that is closely related to gas tungsten arc welding.  In plasma arc welding the electric arc is created between an electrode and the metal you are working with.  The main difference between plasma arc welding and gas tungsten.

Tips for Using Gas Tungsten Arc Welding for Aluminum

Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) uses a tungsten electrode to make a weld and is a kind of arc welding. It is also called tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding. This method can be used on steel or on aluminum but is much more difficult to

The Different Types of Arc Welding

There is a common misconception from people who are not welders. That misconception is that all a welder has to do is grab the welding gun and pull the trigger. Many beginning welders are surprised when they start training that there is so much more

Overview of Plasma Welding

Since its creation in 1957, plasma arc welding has become one of the most reliable forms of welding in today’s world.  Plasma welding is a process where the electrode is inserted into a small nozzle which allows the gases being used to be separated. Plasma

An Introduction to TIG Welding

TIG welding, or tungsten inert gas welding, also known as GTAW (gas tungsten arc welding), is one of my personal favorites.  It consists of a piece of tungsten (the electrode), used to conduct electricity to the work, held in a “torch”, with an inert gas

Welding Starter Guide – Tungsten Inert Gas Welding (TIG)

With its ability to work with various metal types and produce the highest quality welds, TIG welding is the most difficult of the welding process to learn. To help you on your way, here is an introduction to TIG welding. This guide was inspired by
