After watching at least 20 videos on making Rocket Stoves, I decided to try my own design. I scrounged up enough scrap materials laying around the shop to make one that works really well. I used A 10 inch piece of 3" stainless tubing and a short piece of 1-1/4" sq tubing about 5 inches long with a 45% end. I also used some 1/2" nuts and bolts in case I wanted to level it or use it on a picnic table top and not scorch the wood. Or I could use a scrap piece of wood in between the rocket stove and my jeep bumper.

How to TIG Weld Aluminum part 1
 
10:20
Visit my online store https://weldmongerstore.com/ For the best collection of videos on tig welding aluminum click here https://goo.gl/bxkORP This is the first in series of videos about how to tig weld aluminum. My plan is to kick it off with this video and then let the comments dictate the direction I take from here. The reason is what I think folks want to see, may not actually be what they want to see. So comments and questions about how to tig weld aluminum will help. There is a lot to talk about. things like tungsten electrodes..type and size ( i like 2% lanthanated for everything and 3/32 takes care of most of my daily welding) shielding gases ...argon is best to start but if you begin to specialize in thicker aluminum, it might make sense to use a blend of argon and helium...or use some of the newer blends like stargon AL from praxair.

Mig Welding - Short Arc - pushing vs pulling vs Spray Transfer
 
04:05
http://www.weldingtipsandtricks.com/how-to-mig.html Mig welding using short circuit transfer can handle sheet metal thickness all the way up to the beefy thick metal if done right. But for the really thick stuff, Spray transfer can be the ticket. 90/10 argon/co2 gas allows for spray transfer if you are using .035" er70s6 wire at about 25 volts and 350 ipm inches per minute of wire feed speed. Its hot...Its fast....and it really needs a heavy duty mig welding machine.

My first Welding Lathe made from a Old Bicycle
 
07:32
Back around 1998, I got a request to quote a job that involved welding 200 or so small round stainless steel parts. I didnt have a welding lathe or even a turntable at the time...but I quoted the job anyway and got it. The story was... was supposed to get 100 parts every month for several years. (seems like thats always the story to get you to quote lower) but I had heard that song and dance before so instead of stepping out and spending money on a welding turntable, I built my own DIY welding lathe turntable for these parts for the first order of 200 parts. I used an old bicycle, some drill chucks, and a cheap Kmart variable speed drill motor. see the full article here http://goo.gl/h7720K visit the store here http://goo.gl/P36UKS

I started with 1/4" steel and welded one bead. then I stacked 2 beads over top that single root pass. then I stacked 3 beads over top of those 2 beads for a total of 6 beads. In order to get all the use out of the material, beads can be stacked until there is no more room on the plate. This will require letting the meal cool off periodically but will offer a lot of practice and hood time with very little material.

Amperage for stainless - stainless steel is less thermally conductive than carbon steel and therefore requires only about 2/3 of the amperage that would work on carbon steel. so if you would normally use 60 amps on carbon steel, only 40 amps would be needed on stainless. Get your puddle started quickly and get moving - you should have your puddle in 2 seconds or less and get going. Hanging around for several seconds might indicate a need to increase amperage. remember , heat input does not only involve amperage. Travel speed is a big factor also

see the full article and video here http://goo.gl/XGNfvY and visit my store at http://weldmongerstore.com/ The Winner in the AHP giveaway is Chris from Ft Myers FL Chris is currently practicing on his lunch break at his job...trying to improve his skills. Now he can get some practice at home too. In this video, I found some settings I liked for 1/4" (6.1mm) thick aluminum. 80hz, AC balance set to 25%, machine set to 195 using foot pedal worked best for me. For the 1/8" (3.2mm) aluminum angle, 130 amps, 120 hz, bal set to 30 worked well and let me use a sharp point on the electrode.

Welding Career Advice
 
10:13
see the full article http://goo.gl/2lqul1 about my welding career and also some career advice for any young person going into a welding career. I got into welding by accident. I started off in college buy college was not for me. On my first day of welding school, I could tell I was going to like it. I could see progress right away and knew that in less than a year, I was going to working as a welder making good pay. I spent 13 years as a pipe welder, and then pivoted into aerospace welding. Along the way, I got my AWS CWI and SCWI, worked as a welder, welding instructor, metallurgical lab tech, and managed the welding training and certification program at Delta Air Lines Technical Operations Center. It was a great job...until it wasn't.

see the detailed article here http://goo.gl/9wB5Tg and visit the store here http://weldmongerstore.com/ Roy Crumrine aka "crummy_welding" on instagram is building some aluminum iceboxes for corvettes. So its a good example of how to learn from watching someone elses technique... welder settings like ac balance, frequency, and amperage along with arc length, torch angle, speed of travel, addition of filler metal ...all make a difference and these are the things that you need to watch when you are trying to learn to tig weld.

Amperage needs to be hot enough so that when you hold a very tight arc , the rod will not stick. Arc length needs to be short. Rod angle needs to be kept to a minimum..only 5-15 degrees. A long arc will result in molten metal falling out of the puddle and will not produce good results. I used 125 amps for this video but all machines are a bit different and even 7018 rods are different. For example, a Lincoln Excalibur 7018 might require more amperage than a hobart from tractor supply.
