So the Wunderbar mock-up construction is done (pics are MIG’d tack welds) and I spent much of this afternoon working on the finish welding to practice my TIG work, and it seems to be coming along nicely.

I love the level of control you get with the TIG (using the foot pedal) rather than the more “point and pray” approach with the MIG, though the extra set-up time is a pain in the ass…in most cases it’s meant the welds don’t even need dressing. I’m not quite up to the standard of being able to do consistent “fish scale” welds yet but a few of them are in that ballpark, and most of them are just smooth which will do me nicely for the moment 😉 Will post some pics when it’s daytime (it was dark by the time I finished today).
