4spida2fingaz0: I don't have a chance to practice, but I could figure it out in 5 mins now but a job is conning up in Nov I need to conqueror this asap lol
4spida2fingaz0: Jody, how would you best describe the characteristics of initially achieving full penetration? The vid is great I've only tried this a couple of times but my puddle would bubble before I could get it wide enough to start walking. Thanks!
justin mendonca: love the side by side video!
deltas2k: Thegenrl- I've got about 5 hrs on my first and it barely looks dirty. Thing definitely makes propping easier not burning your hands. Jody- thanks again for your pointers and great videos.
thehobohitman: Do you have a weld lip on the pipe to act as filler wire or does it not matter that there might be undercut or low weld ?
hoodlum306: does anyone know where jody is from?
Chris Naude: Hey Jodi, do you mail the Tig-Fingers worldwide?
We use a big tapered brass plug with a hole in it to purge pipe. It works for 3/4" to 4". Just lightly tap it in and it seals up nice.
Meagan Krauss: i borke my hand at work and when i got back to work my b oss put me on a tig wdlder and by watching your vids it helps me out alot i love free handing with tig.
thegenrl: do tig fingers wear out? How long do they last? I don't want get attached to one then realise that i have to buy a new one every 20mins of welding.
rz333: My brother likes to work with metals
FieldRes: Well I've learned a lot through both yours and BrazilWelds' channel, especially little tidbits of information that one otherwise would never think about unless it was pointed out to them. In my whole career, only 2 welders ever bothered to stop what they were doing & take the time out 2show me different things so that I could get better. Fortunately, I have GRB college of Welding in Edmonton here, & I visit them all the time to ask questions. So it is appreciated that you made these videos.
Loafeg: Got myself a set of tig fingers they work great
weldingtipsandtricks: thanks Travis, I have been watching quite a few of your vids lately. there is always something new to learn
landon s: Def. hot... I feel very fortunate to have started out tig welding on stainless and still do everyday. Love that stuff haha
FieldRes: Excellent Video Jody!! I need a foot pedal for the older machines.
WeldFever: Another great video, as usual. Thanks Jody!
caterd300rum: 3 Dislikes come on who wouldn't like this jodys videos are like websters dictionary for welding.
imlwrthnu: I do those joints every day, for being "rusty" it looks awfully good. Some of mine don't turn out that nice haha. Any chance that you've dabbled with the new flux cored tig filler for stainless? I have yet to use it (i've been on the commercial end of work for 5 years and haven't done industrial in awhile) Apparently you can use the flux core on large bore with no purge and it turns out a sugarless root. I think it would make a great video. You are really good with pointers.
cjsaders: i miss welding so much can't wait to get back to still a first year got about 300 hours working at a ship yard. Hurt my leg when i was going down a ladder knee poped out so still waiting on that to heal up.
Indyrox64: Love what you are doing with your videos
David Hopson: TIG fingers are very good for horizontal butt roots, bought myself 12 and only have 2 left as everyone wanted to buy it :) made some monies. Great videos as well. I always use them to refer to for correct techniques, Thank You! Got 6g pipe test this month. 100% will be using my TIG finger..
DUNEPLANET1: nice video!
Mike Guertin: Most headers are built using 304 or 409. I would agree that a 312 filler would be ideal to cover any instance that may come up when building headers for your car/truck
1rad58: Really diggin the split screen. Hope to see more in the future.
Jakeyboyshow: Thanks for the excellent upload as usual Jody, Tig on SS is rapidly becoming my bread and butter at work now and want to pass my first certification on it soon so the tips are just what I wanted! Have a Tig finger already, and use it all the time. Keep your excellent additions coming!
hddm3: you could never be a hack!!!! i resent that statement. love your videos and you have been very helpful to thousands of welders around the world.
zeroyon223: Yeah fit up is everything with dairy/food grade... facing off properly is super important. I find the best welds come from sharpening the tungsten needle sharp, and have it sticking out past the cup quite a bit. You want to see it clearly, and needle sharp tungsten makes the arc pinpoint fine. Also every amp makes a difference, I typically run 42a on my maxstar 200 when welding 1.6mm pipe... hope this helps someone, this guy is the man pretty much though
charles st clair: Hi Jody
This is Keith StClair at Delta. I found your web site looking for Mig tips i hadn't Mig welded in a long time. How have you been? Are you welding somewhere? Its nice to see ya again.
Degenskonto: 6G is called HL045 here. This was the last thing I did at welding school.
trev3579: Jody, love your work mate. A few weeks ago you did aluminium mig welding with a Lincoln PowerMig 350 and mentioned some things about machine settings. I was wondering if you could do a detailed video on this as I have a WIA 270 weldmatic Mig and I am interested in setting it up 2 do a job on an aluminium boat. Any more info on spray arc transfer and what thickness of aluminium you can weld with a mig would also be helpful. cheers, Smithy.
Regal2800: nice video. how thick is the metal? wouldn't high speed pulse be helpful with this?
Chris Wanczyk: Picture in picture rules! Thanks!
cucumelo: Excelente video!! una pregunta, dónde puedo conseguir el dedal térmico en Argentina?
weldingtipsandtricks: contractors develop procedures for all kinds of processes and joints that are not common. for example, i have heard of open root pipe with 7018 for the root with no backing. It depends on job requirements, the engineering authority, and if the procedure can be qualified within the scope of the applicable code.. But I cant picture flux core working very well. One slip of the hand and you have whiskers inside the pipe.
weldingtipsandtricks: if i am not sure what type of stainless it is, 312 would be my first choice. 309 second, 308 third.
exhaust headers could be 300 series stainless like 308 or high end headers might even be 321, but some are 400 series like 409. 312 will handle all of them
weldingtipsandtricks: the video is called "Scratch Start Tig Welding with a Twist"
weldingtipsandtricks: square cut with no bevel 1/16" wall (1.6mm)
sparkplug1018: I'm sure you've mentioned it in other videos, but if you were going to use a filler metal for something like a exhaust header or cold air intake what rod do you recommend?
jerrybrinkley41: Good to see u
socamoto: Great vid! Is there any bevel on the edge and what was the pipe thickness? Thanks!
Mantakev: Hmmmmmm. Hi Jody. Where is the video for the home made foot pedal as I can't find it. Cheers
Mantakev: Hi Jody
Jim Fleming: Jody,do know about welding mig or flux-core on carbon steel pipe in the field? For example,do you have to use self shielding flux-core because of windy conditions, and dose FCAW-S weld open root, or do you need to go to a backing ring type joint ? Thank You
quietmale00101: have you thought of using the temporary rubber freeze plugs with a hole drilled into it for your argon just a thought Iv'e never used argon so i don't know if it would help but it could save time getting set up and they don't cost much at an auto parts store
Geebuv: Great video! One question though. I've always seen stainless welds have all sorts of color in them from purple or blue to that wheat/straw color. Is there a correlation between color and weld strength/quality when welding stainless? Is that regular silver color from this video what you're looking for?
jmc90213: penetration looks real good. whats the gage of the tubing? also i didn't get the pressure you used for the purge? just seems like it would leak out the gap. good vid.
