I don't know if my previous question went through. I MIG and TIG steel sculptures. I am looking for advice on cleaners and sealers for ferrous metals. I have used cold patinas (I am unable to use a torch right now -- this may change), and Permalac with a wax coating. The result indoors and out has been rust. I can accept a certain amount of rust, but I would rather not.

Here is a Quick comparison of Welding Processes that I thought would be helpful. Written in everyday language. (AKA means Also Known As.)

This May I finished my first year attending SUNY Delhi's Welding Technology degree program. I am currently looking for a summer internship/apprenticeship in New York City and perhaps someone could point me towards a shop that might be interested. While I am developing my skills as a welder in class, I know that the real test of my abilities will come from daily practice working in the shop.

Howdy ArtMetal folk. I dunno if I'll ever update this blog but I love browsing and will likely continue to update my picasaweb album as I go (see signature).
Figured I'd start with a post of a tiny history with a couple images.

I'm finally ready to add a TIG welder to the studio. I have a small MIG welder (Millermatic 135) and a couple of buzz-box stick welders (Lincoln AC and Wards AC/DC). I do stainless with the MIG, and when I looked into adding aluminum capability (new liner or reel-gun) I decided I may as well get a new machine.

Ok. So I have an old tig setup, old craftsman ac arc welder with an old miller hf arc starter, foot pedal, 300 amp water cooled tig torch. Can I use this to weld silver jewelry? Really small jewelry,
