Experienced welders know that without the right information, it's easy to sacrifice quality, lose time, and become frustrated with gas-tungsten-arc welding (GTAW), also known as tungsten-inert-gas (TIG) welding. For novices, that statement is even truer. While there's merit in learning to weld by trial and error, if you want to move toward precision GTAW or TIG welding, an introduction and starting off with the basics is a must. Of course, as with anything, practice is the key to fully developing these techniques. Follow along and learn how you, too, can get the most out of your TIG machine and exactly what TIG welding is all about. For more information, contact the companies listed in the source box.
