Basics of TIG Welding DVD

Basics of TIG Welding DVD


Learn how to tig weld with the best!! Mister Tig (Wyatt Swaim-30 years of aerospace welding experience) will teach you the fundamentals and launch your tig welding training. This 34 minute DVD will teach you the proper torch angle, tungsten preparation, tungsten stick-out, and the proper "dabbing" of the filler rod technique. This instructional DVD will help you set up your machine for the correct procedures including aluminum (alternating current), and 4130-cro-mo (DC-). The DVD is also packed with tig information and is designed for the beginner tig operator and will even help the intermediate operator.

The post-anodizing color tint is white. Tensile strength average is 38,000 psi. 36" Cut lengths are packaged in 1lb. tubes. Sold by the pound.
TIG Filler - ER4043 Aluminum

TIG Filler - ER4043 Aluminum

(2)
Washington Alloy 4043 (commonly referred to as AlSi5) is a 5% silicon aluminum filler metal that is available in spools or cut lengths for MIG or TIG processes. This alloy is recommended for welding 3003, 3004, 5052, 6061, 6063 and casting alloys 43, 355, 356 and 214. Washington Alloy 4043 has a melting range of 1065-1170oF and a density of .097 lb./cu. in. The post-anodizing color tint is gray. Tensile strength average is 29,000 psi. 36" Cut lengths are packaged in 1lb. tubes. Sold by the pound.
TIG Filler - ER347 Stainless Steel

TIG Filler - ER347 Stainless Steel

(3)
USA 347 is used for welding AISI types 304, 304L, 321 and 347 where maximum corrosion resistance is required. USA 347 contains columbium which acts as a stabilizer against carbide precipitation thereby eliminating intergranular corrosion. 36" cut lengths are packaged in 1lb. tubes. Sold by the pound.
TIG Filler - ER308L Stainless Steel

TIG Filler - ER308L Stainless Steel

(3)
TIG Filler (36" Cut Lengths in 1 lb Containers) USA 308L is similar to USA 308 but contains an average .02% carbon producing a weld deposit with good resistance against intergranular corrosion caused by carbide precipitation. USA 308L is commonly used for welding AISI types 304L, 308L, 321, and 347. Sold by the pound.
TIG Filler - ER80SD2 Steel

TIG Filler - ER80SD2 Steel

(3)
USA 80S-D2 is designed to give high strength weld son high sulfur bearing (free-machining) steels or medium carbon steels. This wire contains additional amounts of manganese and silicon which, when alloyed with 0.50% molybdenum, produces weld deposits which have high ductility, excellent impact values and tensile strengths of approximately 100,000 psi. USA 80S-D2 is commonly used on low carbon and low alloy steels such as AISI 4130 where tensile strengths provided by plain carbon steel wires are inadequate. A well balanced silicon content gives this wire superior arc stability, a low spatter level and a flat bead with excellent appearance. USA 80S-D2 produces X-ray quality, porosity free welds even over dirt, rust or mill scale. ...
TIG Filler - ER70S-2 Steel

TIG Filler - ER70S-2 Steel

(3)
ER70S-2 is multiple de-oxidized Plain Carbon Steel that has additions of Zirconium, Titanium, and Aluminum in addition to the high levels of Manganese and Silicon common to plain Carbon Steels of this group. The ability of this wire to perform well over oily, dirty, or rusty surfaces is one of its key features. ER70S-2 has a quick freezing weld pool with a somewhat tight molten range, which makes it an ideal choice for welding tubing, piping, and out-of-position applications. The deposits have high ductility, excellent impact values and tensile strength. ER70S-2 is often used on AISI 4130 tubing where lower tensile strengths are acceptable or where reinforcing gussets are used in the design. Tensile strength: 83,000 psi (specs call for ...

Mig Wire

(3)
Premium copper coated MIG wire, SuperArc L-56 is an excellent choice for welding on metals with a medium to high presence of millscale. For best performance use on clean, oil-free, and rust-free base material. Best weld appearance and toe wetting when compared to ER70S-3 and ER70S-4 classifications. SuperArc L-56 has high silicon and manganese deoxidizer levels. Superior feedability and excellent arc characteristics are trade-marks of SuperArc L-56. Shielding gases include argon/carbon dioxide blends, argon/oxygen blends, 100% carbon dioxide, and three or four-part gas blends.
Solar Flux-Type B/1 Lb

Flux


SOLAR FLUX WELDING FLUX A back-up flux for use on stainless and chromoly steel that quickly & easily produces x-ray quality welds, without the need of gas purging. Brushing it on back of the joint shields it from oxygen, dissipates heat, cleans the metal, and prevents re-oxidation and heat scale. (Failure to purge or protect the joint back results in porous welds and burn-through) Mix with 100% methyl alcohol (ie 'Heet',etc) for best results. For use with any gas or arc welding method. Meets MIL-F-7516B cls 2 & 4. 1 lb can. Non-hazardous. Can be sent air.
