Let's see your micro welds. Anybody can weld thick stuff. 8-) I actually used filler on this....i plucked a couple of wires out of a cup brush and fused them together and this is what happened. Look at that heat build up on the end. At 10 amps it's hard to back off the pedal.

I did a little build-up on this corner that had worn off from use. How is my ripple spacing??

Last time I blew a hole the size of a dime on razor blades and had arc strikes and blown holes on aluminum cans because the tig welder I use doesn't like low amps with 3/32" tungsten i guess. And maybe a little operator error and lack of experience too.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

Wouldn't surprise me if one day I did, just for the hell of it. I mean, I have nothing else to spend my money on besides audio gear, so why not? :mrgreen:

Smallest thing I ever welded. Sintered part of a torque wrench.
Two details reveals my stupidness. :mrgreen:

I used to know a guy who said he could weld anything from a filament in a light build to the crack of dawn.
