5 most common mistakes in TIG welding



There are always certain things that beginners do wrong or find difficult. Of course I know that from myself too, and I keep getting the same questions, so I know what the problems are at the beginning. With my workshop participants I can always see perfectly live which things always creep in.

Cleanliness is also the be-all and end-all when welding, i.e. the part you want to weld must be nice and clean. So prepare optimally, clean with acetone or polish with a wire brush. Welding can also clean in between so that the weld seam always remains nice and clean.
