TIG welding to join stailess steel pipes of thickness 0.3mm

I want to weld stainless steel pipe AISI 201 having .3mm thickness. I am trying to TIG weld on it but it makes hole on pipes instead of join. Kindly explain how can I weld it.


.3mm??? thick?

thats like .012" unless that decimal point is in the wrong place, you are going to have trouble.

joints will need to be perfect, backing gas will be absolutely necessary and small welding wire , tight arc, and low amperage are all important
