I only let people see my welds after my angle grinder has had its way with them.

Building flag mount for the stock bumper.

I have only tig welded a few times. The last weld was the best. I guess I will have to grind it all down before powder coat to make it look better.

Sorry I have to ask what kind of rod are you using?

I do my work in my driveway, so I never messed with argon. A buddy of mine that x-rays welds for a living said it would just blow away, it would make my work look a lot better but might be tough outside. I'd like to run gas, but just haven't invested in a bottle/regulator.
Also apparently theres anti-spatter spray. I've never used that either. That's really only for aesthetics right?
Anyway, feel free to critique, I'm always open to learning...

It's not rod - .035 flux core mig wire from a wire feeder, no argon.

What volt is your welder those are some nice welds?

I used to run just the flux core, but on my welder you can switch polarity and run gas to (or soild core wire) and it creates less slag on the weld and the weld comes out a little cleaner with less effort...

120v, Lincoln 3200HD

I got it from my old man, he set the polarity a while back, I never thought to check it.

Last weekend we tackled the long-arm upgrade on my son's LJ. The brackets were from UCF and were very well made.

We used a 3M Clean & Strip disk to prep the frame. This way no metal is removed, just the paint/undercoating.


A few of my welds.








After prepping and painting with a liberal coat of POR-15.


We also used one of UCF's Tummy Tuck belly pans and installed Tom Wood's driveshafts but I don't have any pictures of the completed undercarriage.

Mike.

Here are a few TIG welds but not from my Jeep. Just a few random shots of things that I have welded in the shop.
The pic with the strate bead with the tig weld there's a hole in the end of your bead. If you pull your arch off to the side of your weld before you let up on the paddle it won't leave a whole. Just a tip I learned in welding school. But other then that nice work. What kind of machine u useing

Thanks. I generally taper off at the end but every once in a while I get in a hurry and chop the arc too soon.

Machines in my shop are a Miller MM251 MIG machine and a Dynasty 300DX Tigrunner with cooler.
