Ever wonder why so many really good TIG welders use a #5 cup with standard collet body on aluminum?
There is a reason. In fact there are several reasons.
Not only can you save some argon, but a #5 cup can limit the etching zone and actually get better penetration than a larger cup using the same amperage. (I have proved this out with many tests.)
My good friend Roy Crumrine (@crummywelding on instagram) uses a standard #5 all the time on a #20 style water cooled torch.
