I am in the middle of modifying my Targa frame and making it wider to become part of the railing. A friend who is pretty good at tig welding got me started and after that I got lots of off-cuts to learn on. I am getting better at it but can tell it takes a lot of practise. I know how to mig and stick weld so that helps. Patients is the trick. Mig welding is much more forgiving. I notice with tig welding you have to make sure your joins are perfect, glasses and helm
need to be very clean. Get a comfortable position while welding .
I used to dial up to much power on the TIG but since I slowed down it is getting better.
More welding today and after the Targa frame is finished I make a new Bimini
I like doing it and I think that makes all the difference. If you don't enjoy it get somebody else to do it for you.
