Striking an arc on tig

Hey Jody, I have noticed a lot of your videos, and Some of the tig ones interested me greatly. I want to learn how to tig pipe, but none of your videos actually show you striking an arc on pipe. All your videos start after you strike the arc and have welded some. So can you post a video of how to strike an arc on pipe and other gaps with tig?


I have plans for many videos. pipe welding too.

thanks for reminding me that i need to show all the basics.

I dont know exactly when I will get to it, but i will get around to showing how to strike an arc with a dry rig tig torch.
