PULSE ARC WELDS
The top three photos was taken when I just started playing with the pulses on the pulse arc welder. The top left photo is two washers welded together, the middle is two strands from a 12 gauge copper wire welded to a washer and the photo on the right is two strands of a 12 gauge wire that were held against the tungsten electrode while firing a 45ms pulse. The bottom two photos were taken after I managed to manipulate and change the pulses to give better welds. The plasma flame produced here is extremely hot.
I have made thousands of welds and adjustments to get this far and will keep on going until I get it to work perfectly. I accidentally made a plasma cutter that cuts through metal when I made the pulses continuous and also managed to weld a copper wire to aluminum.
I'm limited to the metals I have to do further tests however and will appreciate if someone with knowledge of these welders can help me with some advice. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
