Tig welding thick carbon steel tips
Tungsten electrodes have an upper range amperage limit and for some reason, tungsten amperage range charts seem to be very generous on the upper limits.
For example, some charts rate a 1/16" at up to 150 amps.
personally, I think a limit of 100 amps is more accurate for a 1/16" diameter tungsten.
a 3/32" tungsten works fine up to around 200 amps.
For Tig welding thick carbon steel at over 200 amps, I recommend going to 1/8" tungsten in either 2% lanthanated, 2% thoriated, or 2% ceriated.
