TIG welding is as much an art as it is science. Putting two pieces of metal together via TIG or MIG welding is not that difficult with some practice, but welding with precision and consideration for cosmetics definitely takes some skill. Luckily, most of that skill can come with practice. Sure it might take a lot of practice, but that practice will pay dividends when you finish up a weld that is so clean you are disappointed that you’ll be hiding it somewhere in your project. Another way to make sure you get good at welding sooner rather than later is to listen to the experts, or at least someone that is better at it than you.
In this video you’ll see how to put together a small tank, made of 1/8th inch 5052 aluminum, a material commonly used for fuel tanks and the like. So watch the video and learn a few things and then get out there and start welding on your own.
