Hi all, I had a TIG class today in the morning and we ran out of Ar Gas (both bottles in the shop are now empty) and I’d like to get our new users practicing their newly acquired skills into practice @ncatranis, @texorcist, I can’t find Canons handle. What is the process to get new Ar gas for the shop? I know AriGas can hook us up with more Ar but I don’t know where we typically get our consumables from. If someone can reimburse me I’d be more than willing to take the two empty bottles to AirGas Monday morning or wherever we currently get our consumables from to have them re-filled. Let me know what we can do. Thanks you.
Hi Rebecca, I would recommend you bring goatskin gloves for TIG welding, or any leather glove thin enough that they don’t keep you from being dexterous. Also closed toed shoes (steel toe boots recommended but not necessary), long cotton pants, long sleeved shirt also cotton and if possible, fire resistant. I’ll include an image of the PPE I use when I TIG weld. I buy my goatskin gloves at AirGas or you can probably also find a pair at Texas Weld Supply.
