Even if I am just tinkering around welding little small stuff I have long sleeves, welding gloves and the full blown welding helmet. Gives me the real welder look. I.m getting alot better at hitting the arc where it's supposed to be without being far off now and without getting the welder flash which only happened once. I hear that ones retina can get burned out from the intensity......but I still can't get rid of the "birdcrap" "grapes".

You supposed to get a puddle going and follow it along??? I can see the puddle forming bright orange then try to move it along then I end up with huge bubbly type things. I'll get some pics and put em up here.

When looking for "the puddle" ignore the colored puddle which is the flux...the shinny looking puddle is the the metal of the rod fusing with the base metal to be welded.

I tig weld stainless mostly these days...no residual flux and only a quick brushing to clean afterwards.
