The first weekend in March I attended the EAA SportAir TIG Welding Workshop in Griffin, Georgia. Great class! I would highly recommend it for anyone who is looking to do TIG welding specific to Aircraft building, both with 4130 steel and aluminum.
This is my first experience welding aluminum . . . what a different animal. Glad I’ll only be working with 4130 steel for my rollover assembly. Still, it was fun to try something new.
Below are a couple of practice projects we did in the workshop. I added a few pieces to a few them of them to make it a little more realistic. Our instructor was fantastic and really helped lock in our TIG site picture, pointing out how to improve our techniques & showing us a few tricks. It helped immeasurably.
