Hahaha that made me laugh. I usually inspect the damage after too. 

I just flip em over and realise they’re not as hot as I thought.

Upgraded my tig so I can learn how to weld aluminium. I have nothing specific I want to weld, it's just a passion and a skill I fancy learning

You'll find it a bit different to steel but still good fun and definitely rewarding with a little practise.

We've got a Jasic 200P AC/DC TIG set at work that I mess around with. Nothing serious but have fun giving anything a go!

Looking good Dan! Looks like that one needs a bit more current and more cleaning action, you want the oxide to be away from the bead if poss.

Technique is really easy to be honest, it takes 10 minutes to learn and a lifetime to master!! My background is mostly Mig both mild and stainless steel only started Tig in May this year. All I need is to just get more torch time and work on my feed consistency.
