TIG Arc

Hi Jody,
Watching your TIG video, I saw your arc is looked strong and steady.
Would you tell me how to get that "strong and steady" arc like that? what type machine you used, what's the setting, how to prep the metal, and so on???
Always wonder when can I get an arc like that??
Good job, great site, Thanks Jody.

Steven.

Steven,

I have used a miller syncrowave 250, a miller dynasty 200dx, an everlast 250ex, and an everlast powerpro 250ex for my tig videos.

All of them have a strong steady arc.

its usually a matter of cleaning the metal, sharpening the tungsten, getting good gas shielding, and keeping the tip of the hot rod shielded all the time.
