Scout 01-21-2008 09:13 PM

Actually I think that would be a platipus.

tiny terror 01-21-2008 09:35 PM

No no, that's a duck to a beaver.

Dare2BSquare 01-21-2008 09:37 PM

Unheroic Hero 01-21-2008 09:51 PM

Smeghead 01-21-2008 09:56 PM

Do those little one time $10 walmart welding kits work at all?

:rofl:, I'm guessing not many people know what a G8 is.

Dare2BSquare 01-21-2008 10:08 PM

I'm assuming it is a grade for welders?

Couldn't pass up the way you set me up.

I bet once the "girls" become "women" you'll be in the dark on that one as well.

I just started using a helium and argon mix to weld some aluminum castings. Iíve had pretty good results so far with a home made mixing canister with baffles inside. My question is what flow rates should I be running on my helium and argon? Iíve been shooting for a 75%He 25% Ar mix. I have been all over the place on flow settings just wanted to see where you set your regulators. So far approx best settings Iíve found is 30CFH He/ 10CFH Ar. Typically I use between a #6-#8 cup and a gas lens when I can. Is 30 CFH on the He too much? I havenít seen a consistent pattern that tells me its too much flow and sucking in air. But sometimes the welds start out with soot even on clean metal. I have also seen some ďmudĒ or what appears to be a skin over the puddle sometimes. That skin seems to burn off or is cleaned off as the puddle heats up. I have noticed that with my baffle chamber that the flow starts out very high because it has a built up chamber of gas with no regulator on the outlet. I try to compensate for the high initial flow by setting pre flow to 2 sec. The regulators on the bottles take over after the first few seconds and Iím sure the flow then is what the regs add up to.

Thanks in advance for any advice,
-Matt
