boilermaker from local 169

years ago when I started we used a torch with the tungsten held at and angle to the flame. then slowly rotate the tungsten and you will get a perfect tip with no grind marks that have a negative effect on the current pattern. I still teach this trick to apprentices that are willing to listen. Try it. came from the days when grinders were not always available on the job.

Return to tungsten sharpeners.
