capping with tig

by mark

when you are getting reaDY TO CAP WITH TIG,DO YOU TURN THE HEAT DOWN AT ALL.the pipe is already screaming hot.


If the pipe is that hot, i would let it cool a bit. Just let a fan blow on it for 5 minutes or so and it will make a big difference.
Sometime I try to rush jobs like this and it always seems to go better when i stop and let it cool before the cap
