Learned a bit about tig welding along the way, tube in stainless needs purging on the inside to stop the weld 'sugaring' basically like mig without gas, I did a test and the unpurged weld as well as looking rough, also rusts on the sugary bit? I do like tig now just got to be very clean and accurate in the fit of parts, I'd say a more gentlemanly way to join metal Grin Cool

My mate Keith TIG'd the headlight brackets on my truck recently, (I decided to move them). I was rummaging for some old blankets to protect the glass & paint from sparks, but he told me TIG doesn't produce sparks like other welds.
As you say, a more refined way to glue metal together.
