no filler rod

I'm currently doing some tig. welding on stainless steel using 1/8 and 3/16 in. thick sheets; basically small "boxes" on larger ones. Do you have any suggestions or tips that might help?. I've had a few problems "pinholes" and such. P.S. Great site.


use a gas lens.

use the smallest electrode you can get away with
get to welding quick after you light up...

dont fart around on one place too long.

keep the hot tip of your wire shielded and snip if you dont.

hold a pretty tight arc

use a sharp tungsten
