    I have set mine to 200hz like the setting of the TIGs without pulse and that's nice but travel speeds needs to be quicker for a given penetration.

    Dragging the cup works well although on alloy it doesnt look as good but if that gives you good consistent welds and it stops the tungsten being dipped often then why not.

    Cheers
    I drag the torch and then dab the filler in the puddle. Its what i thought you were supposed to do. Probs wrong tho! Haha

    So if you are facing the workpiece and start at the right you are pushing the weld puddle to the left? Thatís fine. Cheers

    Nah I'm doing it wrong. Will see if doing it properly makes any difference.

    This is the kind of weld I ended up with 3/4 times, though i took a second pass on about half of them To even them out


    And this is the finished handle on the cart. Unfortunately i didnt let the paint cure fully so managed to scratch some of it off, so will have to touch it up at some stage.
