Tig Amperage

Postby Cle808 » Mon Jan 22, 2018 4:27 pm

Need a hand. I am preparing to test initially for my fillet weld tig test. We are welding on 3/8's carbon plate and are being told to use approx 140 amps. We are using 1/8 tungsten and 1/8 or 5/32 er70-6 According to calculators I can find this seems extremely low. Please advise me on what Amperage I should be at. Several samples we have cut appear to lack fusion deep in the corner of the weld.
