May 1 TIG pop 2

May was fun for Tig welds. We had so many entries sent in, so let’s get back to the May review of Tig’d Up Tuesday!

Our Tig’d Up Tuesday is focused towards arts of all types. While we post mostly Automotive on FabricationLife, we stray around and will post anything that is Tig welded. Many of the entires we get are great, but the photos are not very clear or usable so we have to sort through many entires to find those we can use. But it is getting better, especially with the quality packed into newer cell phones. This gives you SLR camera-type power in the palm of your hands on the fly. So keep submitting and send us photos which are in focus and clear to depict! And remember, we always like to hear your feedback. Tell us which one you like the most…
