pulse yag laser is the ticket for production of jewelry.

but there are a few people that have discovered how to do some precise welding of gold jewelry using a miller dynasty 200 dx with .020 or .040 electrodes. The dynasty has a 1 amp start.

It used to have some start issues, but newer models are very crisp if the electrode used is prepared right.
