In this quick video blog, I stopped by the OTC Daihen booth during FABTECH 2022 in Atlanta to catch up with fellow welder Rush Kane, who shared one of his favorite TIG welding tips and tricks: Prepping a tungsten electrode for more efficient use on the fly.
In short, it involved 90-degree die grinder, a 2-inch diamond wheel, and a some tungsten electrodes. He used the diamond wheel and grinder to cut the electrode in half and then finish the shortened rods to fine point. Tungsten Carbide Plates
Also, check out a conversation I had with Rush back at FABTECH 2021 about his partnership with OTC Daihen and another conversation I had with him and Nate Bowman regarding their Weld Labs project.
