DVD: How to Tig Weld & Home Media Blasting

TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding, was known for years by many enthusiasts simply as heliarc welding; a process that often involved very expensive equipment and gases. The cost of equipment has come down dramatically over the years and is now within reach for most auto restoration hobbyists. Getting started TIG welding, requires getting the right setup. Professional hot rod fabricator and welder, Gary Simpson, explains what you’ll need to get your equipment setup, welder settings and work area to ensure high quality welding results.

Like many welding processes, it takes some time, training and practice to perfect, however the advantages TIG offers outweigh the investment you’ll make. Splatter free welds, precise control of the weld area, and the ability to quickly change between welding aluminum, steel and stainless steel, are just some of the advantages you’ll discover.

Mark Simpson demonstrates how adding and properly maintaining an at-home media blasting cabinet can dramatically improve the quality of your restorations. He shows exactly what steps you need to know to: maintain the consumable parts, selecting blasting media, safety considerations, preparing parts for blasting and how to protect the parts you don’t want blasted.

A popular conversion to give cars a more modern stance is the addition of lowering blocks. Mark will take you through the process of adding lowering blocks and important considerations that should be made when deciding exactly how much to lower a car.
