      ok sooooooooooooo here's the deal I am hoping to have a new hosting site by the end Nov middle of Dec That being said I have had only 2 peeps offering to help support the site So I think those who want to help should hold on to your cash till then. I do not want to take any money and then the site close (cause that would not be right) Many be can find some extra before then so no one has to pitch in. That's it for now Thanks WhiteWolf

A little info on home made Tig setups

4 posts in this topic

I scrounged up a bunch of stuff to built a TIG out of my old AC stick welder. Picked up a torch and some big diodes, SCRs and a choke to turn the AC into a foot pedal controlled DC. Also got some giant MOSFETs to turn the DC into a square wave with adjustable duty cycle and frequency. It's all pretty simple circuits, you just use big-ass components.

 

Unfortunately, I blew my money on those big-ass components and never got around to buying the gas cylinder. That's why I'm still staring at a pile of parts instead of sticking metal together with a stupid simple scratch-start TIG.

That's a lot of words, about half of which I understand. Looks sketchy though, so I know it's for me!
