    Tungsten Sharpening & Cutting

    Tungsten Grinders are very nice to have and make sense for some applications …but definitely not 100% necessary for beginners.

    So here are some best practices for tungsten sharpening to avoid problems like splitting and rough arc starts

    * always score the electrode first before breaking

    * Use a dedicated rock or sanding disc that is not contaminated with other metals

    * Make sure all your grinding scratches are running with the length and not sideways

    * Use a fine enough grit stone or disc to not leave rough scratches

    * Use a more needle like tip for low amps and thin metal

    * Use a more blunt tip for higher amps and thicker metal
