Tig Welding - October 6, 2009, 12:16 PM

Well here is my first attempt at welding titanium. The sheets are .010 thick which is like 2 pieces of paper. I figure if I can weld the thin stuff then the thicker stuff will be easier!

Looks good Ti is a pain in the ass to weld. Do you have any close ups of the weld. Looks from a distance like you might need a little less heat and/or more filler. Whats the back side of the weld look like?

There is no filler! At my main job I use no filler in any of my welds. That is a overlap weld which is one of the hardest to do. Yea the backside is not as pretty because I was just doing a test for work. When I go and do the real thing I will need to make an Argon gas box to weld in. As for heat I had the dial set a 16 amps and only had the pedal down about 1/3. So about 5 to 6 amps was used. There was so little heat I could touch it right after welding.

oh fuck overlap welding that shit sucks. I will use filler on just about any and everything i can. The fact that is is a fuse joint is why I said lower heat. It looks concave which is useally a sing of not enough rod or to much heat. A fuse weld just looks that way. Nice work welding thin stuff sucks!!!

looks good for an overlap with no filler. my first reaction was like nubbs... too much heat.

I'm not sure how to clean it up without fillter
