When welding, the electrode (wire) coming out of the welding gun hits the metal being welded which makes a circuit. When the circuit is made it shorts out. This happens about 90 to 230 times per second when using .023 welding wire as used for welding thin metals.
While this is a big advantage in production welding, it can actually be a disadvantage in doing fine work like repairing cracks. In general, you have more control over the puddle with GTAW. Additionally, because the heat source and the wire feed are independent with GTAW, you can use your torch to provide extra heat where needed without adding wire.
The torch is rated up to around 90 amps, but I set the pedal to weld in the 20-60 amp range. I also like to use filler rod that matches what I’m welding. I ran some solid core .030 MIG wire off of the spool and used that to run my welds. Any type of welding causes
