Hello boys and girls ! Today I got a visit from a "Heliarc Artist" !

I'm not going to mention his name....(you all know him)......

He was at the shop for just a few hours today (not nearly enough).....and gave ol' Marko a first-class demonstration on Heliarc welding !

When I saw his beads (on aluminum and steel), it made me want to cry....they were absolutely beautiful ! :(

See if you can name the "mystery visitor".................... ;)

I hope its not a layaway Plan. Give it to Franz! He's in a sensitivity training program and might want to help some one out.

Seriously.......todays learning (thanks to "Arcdawg")............

#1 - I wasn't aiming the torch properly. (Needed to be more perpendicular).
#2 - Wasn't holding the filler rod properly ( Need to lay it down more).
#3 - Wasn't "moving" correctly (need to move straight, not "whip").
#4 - Need to hold a closer arc.
#5 - Need to apply the filler RIGHT AT THE LEADING EDGE OF THE PUDDLE.
#6 - Need to keep the arc RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PUDDLE.
#7 - Need to work on my timing..............

The couple hours he spent with me taught me A LOT ! ! !

.......Thanks Brian, and you're ALWAYS welcome here ! :) :) :)
