School Me On Oxy/Acy Welding

Can someone help me out or point me in the right direction to somewhere that can? I need the basics laid out for me.

Your local Victor dealer should have little yellow books that explains it all pretty well. My welding shop hands them out free! You will need that and a little patience!

That was our text in college in 1981( many reprints). I still refer to it.

Its all about the flame. Once you get a nuetral flame it makes it a lot more do able. Nice, tight round tit...tip I said tip on the blue flame.

The weld goes where the heat is!

That's about it, control the heat, you'll control the weld.

No you don't want the flux from the rod. Go out and pick yourself up some tig rod and your off to the races.
