Well the boss at work is finally teaching me tig,  I had a small touch of it in a welding class about 6 or 7 years ago but nothing after that.  I'm excited can't wait to get good and beable to sanitary weld some of my brew gear.  Think I might run something by my boss since we have a crap ton of tubing for scrap if he would mind if I made a project out of learning and put together my single tier brew stand once I feel alil more comfortable.  I'll keep updating this thread with progress pics of my welds,  so with out further adieu pics of me chicken scratch for first time on a tig torch in a long time lol









Thanks for creating such a wonderful discussion. It was really helpful. The images you shared were very nice. I need some advice regarding buying a welder. I am a beginner and need some suggestions as the internet is making me confused. Some questions are bothering me like MIG or TIG? Which one should I buy? Gas or gasless?
