Here's a TIG workbook.
It's on me.



This update includes a brand new video that I hope will help you get the most out of your TIG welder no matter what brand you own.

NOTES ON THE UPDATE

This update includes a brand new video that I hope will help you get the most out of your tig welder no matter what brand you own. It has been my experience that when I am limited to a 225 amp machine or lower, I get better results on thicker aluminum if I use a lower AC Frequency setting like 50-60hz.

I saw this first hand at a Lincoln Electric advanced motorsports class where they had some cast aluminum cylinder heads set up for practice. I tried to weld a small area at a high setting of 200hz and couldn’t even create a puddle at max amperage.  But someone in the class told me I needed to lower the AC frequency setting to 50hz to get more heat into the thick casting.

So I lowered the AC Frequency to 50hz and boom! I was able to puddle the metal and weld.

It went against all the literature from both Lincoln and Miller…but it is what worked. That is when I learned that higher AC Frequency settings are great but only if you have adequate amperage.

Like if you have a Miller dynasty 700 , you can use really high frequency settings with no problem and puddle thick aluminum quickly. But if you have a 200 amp welder, you might need to try lower frequency settings.

This update includes a video that illustrates the difference in AC Frequency settings.


WHAT I LEARNED IN 2023

One of the things I enjoy about welding is there is always something new to learn. Aside from learning more about things like AC frequency settings and how argon flow affects cleaning action, I also learned some things about how YouTube works.

In 2023 I learned that I need to make sure the right people see my welding videos. What I mean by that is I can’t depend on YouTube's algorithm to share my videos to you. I posted more videos in 2023 than any other year prior and some of my best videos got throttled back and didn’t reach many folks.

In fact, I posted a new video every single day in August of 2023 thinking that could reach a lot more people…but I actually got way less views on those videos. Go figure.

So that got me to thinking. Should I even be posting all my best videos on YouTube for the general public? Or should I send some of my best content to a more loyal and interested audience that really appreciates my work? Instead of posting more videos to Youtube, why not just send any extra videos directly to you?…and not worry about YouTube view counts.

The fact that you downloaded this TIG workbook in the first place tells me you are the right person to be receiving my best TIG welding videos. And I plan on updating this workbook often with videos that may not ever become public on YouTube.

So that is the plan for 2024 and beyond. To make more videos especially for you. Because you are the one that were interested enough to download my workbook.  

As a customer to my store, I want to say thank you for your support. And I hope you get some real value out of my videos and workbooks. This new Tig welding video update for this workbook is not currently public on YouTube and might not ever be made public.  

But either way, you get to see it long before anyone else.

not the most tech savvy?

Not a problem. Here's a super quick guide on how to download and open your TIG Workbook.

  • On a computer, when you download your file it should automatically go into your computer's downloads folder
  • On iPhone or iPad, your download file should also go into a downloads folder inside your "Files" app
  • On Android, it should go into "My Files" or "File Manager" app

Once you've got the file open, you can click on the links and on the video thumbnails to go to a private page where the guide videos are posted. It's that simple!

 

Cheers!
