GAS / OXY ACETYLENE + MIG + TIG
Oxy Acetylene welding, a small collection of pictures of some sample brazed joints i have cleaned up. This is the one welding process I'm feeling comfortable with out of all of them as i have the most experience with it. I would say 40 percent of the work is in the preparation of the joint, 20 percent in the execution of the braze and then the other 40 is mucking about with a file and then getting the filing marks out with a last step of wet and dry. Very rewarding though, so its worth the physical workout.
MIG welding practice, some different joints helping me get used to how the MIG reacts with varied steel thickness and shape. Slow but steady progress learning the effects of wire speed and the looping sizes and speeds.
TIG welding practice, this is a small selection of pieces of scrap i had a go on in my first session of TIG welding, found it a little easier than i thought it would be to be honest. Not that i found it easy at all! It does have its similarities. Torch in one, welding rod in the other hand was similar to brazing in a way. With loads of brazing in various projects the flow of the process was similar in my eyes once i got going. Does indeed require a steady hand without a doubt.
