302 stainless steel no filler welding

I have plate of 302 stainless steel. the thickness of plate is about 1.5 mm. I decide to tig welding but no filler. I don't know parameter of Tig to start for example Amperage or velocity of welding. please help me.


you will need roughly 30-40 amps per 1 mm. possibly a bit less.

2% thor, cer, or lanth tungsten about same dia as your base metal 1.5mm sharpened to a point.

the rest is up to you and your skill. if you are new to tig, you will need to practice on some scrap or you might turn your project into scrap.
