Weird little balls on the tip of the tungsten

Postby rayhall » Sat Dec 16, 2017 2:11 am

Hello Everyone,

I have used an old Miller TIG welder for years. I just replaced it with a new UNIMIG 200 AC/DC TIG. The old Miller had next to no settings. The UNIMIG has knobs everywhere. I am having trouble with the tip of the tungsten. I am unsure what is wrong. With the old Miller I got a round ball end when I used too many amps. This has weird little balls on the tip.
