Pulse Settings, Jazzy 10, & Combo Kits

I love high speed pulse for tig welding on an edge bead...But I have a love hate relationship with Pulse settings in general.

Shown above is a Jazzy 10 ceramic cup and combo kits

I like using over 33 pulses per second and I especially love high speed pulse for welding on or near an edge.

I am also ok with 1 or 2 pulses per second for certain applications like using a turntable.

I hate anything in between....hurts my brain.

In my opinion, anything in between 3 and 33 pps should only be used for orbital and automated welding where the weldor does not have to get a headache from watching the flickering arc.

Higher speed pulses of 33pps and higher are not hard on the eyes and actually are a little bit like welding on AC as far as the arc flickering a bit.

Higher pulse rates of 100 and higher really help focus the arc and work well for tool and die, and mold repair.

For this video page, I was a little bit rusty so I decided to just run a bead on the edge of some 11ga steel to show how high speed pulse settings work for controlling the weld bead on an edge.

The Jazzy 10 ceramic cup really helped on multiple bead stacks.
