This is the first in our series on TIG or Gas Tungsten Arc Welding of aluminum. We have chosen to focus on weld quality beneath the surface. On the internet you will find no shortage of photos of gorgeous manual TIG welds. I can appreciate a “stack of dimes” weld bead as much as anyone. Symmetrical, perfectly spaced ripples do indeed showcase the skills of the welder. But sometimes beauty is only skin deep.
