Top 3 TIG tips

  1. aim for an arc length that is equal to or slightly less than electrode diameter (arc length is distance from tip of tungsten to puddle)
  2. limit torch angle to around 15 degrees ( torch angle can be very forgiving provided you hold a tight arc)
  3. Keep the hot tip of filler rod shielded in the argon plume and snip off the tip for restarts if tip has is discolored... or not kept shielded in argon
