    Unintentional spontaneous fermentation.

    I tear down the siphon tube and valve assembly as far as I can between brews and everything is cleaned with PBW, a long soak in star san, air dried, reassembled, and tucked away. Just before the boiling hot wort goes in I spray everything with star san, spray up in the siphon tube and valve...

    Unintentional spontaneous fermentation.

    Brewed a Bo Pils 12/13, transferred the still 205+ deg wort to my sanitized SS Brew Bucket, placed lid and star san airlock on bucket. Left in garage for 48 hours, moved into fermentation chamber on 12/15. Then I came down with pneumonia (12/16), and could hardly move much less to aerate and...

    Any TIG welders that can help me?

    Mild steel tibubv. I will try and grab pics tomorrow, no gaps, sticks were the biggest issue, blow outs were next and then porosity. Managing my heat input on thin material was difficult. If I turned the amps down to 35-40 it was hard to get a puddle going and the pace was pretty slow. If I...

    Thanks, just trying to learn right now. I knew it was a more involved process going into it, just trying to get feedback from persons more experienced.

    Any TIG welders that can help me?

    So my dad has some nice metal square tubing stadium seats that were 17in wide. Where we use them they have a new policy of 16in, so we cut them down and TIG welded them back together. It's around 17-18 ga metal, did the 3 C's (clean X3), set the machine to 50amps. It wasn't pretty but got the...

    Coupon on the left is the way most of mine look...coupon on the right is after 10 min of flapping with 60 and 80 grit....media blasting takes forever also...any suggestions on cleaning process? I have also used the grinder and then flap it works okay.

    Glassbeaded the coupons, then a wire wheel, then mineral spirits, then acetone, Increased to my largest cup a #10, bumped the amps from 120 to 127, went from 10lpm to 12lpm on gas (mine measures in lpm not cfh so have to do math), 1/16 filler, pretty good results

    Any TIG welders that can help me?

    I have plenty of 16ga sheet scraps from the CNC plasma that can be cut into coupons. I have attempted to TIG the 16ga and it was a disaster...even with several tacks the material warped between the tacks. I have filler rods just about everywhere, to practice feeding with both hands during "down...

    I've been using 1/16 filler, I do wipe it down (between every start and stop) and the Tungsten (after grinding).

    Any TIG welders that can help me?

    The second attachment was giving me fits A buddy has a blasting cabinet I can use. I'm going to take my coupons there and blast them vs wire wheel, then grind, then flapper, wipe with acetome to get them clean.

    Any TIG welders that can help me?

    Getting better....1/8 material.....cleaned and cleaned and cleaned some more then welded. No filler just a torch only run..120amps. Got a little harbor freight folding welding table so I could sit and pratice vs being hunched over. Used a filler rod and you think the material is all clean...

    Tungsten is a 3/32 2% Thoriated, I'll try to dig and find some thinner material, I'm pretty sure it's 1/4in.
