So unfortunately the Argon tank that we got 2 weeks ago is already emptied by the new TIG.
As far as I know, the Welding cause does not have enough cause funds to purchase a refill.
Some members have said they’ll chip in for a refill, can anyone who is willing to chip in for the refill please post in here with the value you’re willing to chip in.
Lower flow rates might be in order
Too high a flow rate and you “aspirate” air into the shield gas which is as bad as too low a flow rate.
Also look at gas lenses for your hand piece. I have never fitted mine because I do such little welding, but if you are going to be TIG-ing enough to blow a bottle every few weeks, it will be well worth a lens for the $.
Also once the novlety of TIG has worn off - go back to the MIG for welding up your benches/tables/etc. MIG = lot cheaper to run.
$20. btw Some time back I sent $80 in to get HS a one year 4zzz community organisation subscription but that failed to get traction. If it’s possible, I’d be quite happy for that to go toward the argon refill costs.
