EAA Introduces New TIG Welding Instructional DVD

Learn step-by-step with TIG welding expert Wyatt Swaim

Anna Bobrowski

April 12, 2012 - The increasingly popular TIG welding method for aircraft construction is now easier to master than ever, with the help of a new instructional DVD available through EAA, the leading source of knowledge and information for homebuilders. TIG Welding: Chromoly is a 90-minute video that features all of the necessary skills to learn and master welding of thin-walled 4130 chrome moly steel (chromoly) tubing that is used extensively in aircraft construction. That is an area not covered in other TIG welding educational materials.

EAA's DVD includes key basics and advanced techniques such as:

  • Tungsten and Filler Rod Selection
  • Basic Technique
  • Running a Bead on Plate
  • Tacking
  • T-Joints
  • Rosette Welding
  • Lap Welding
  • Cluster Welding
  • And much more!

The DVD is hosted by Wyatt Swaim, aka Mr. TIG, acknowledged as one of the world's leading authorities on TIG welding. Swaim is a regular instructor at the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh workshops and for motorsports teams throughout the country, and is part of the trackside welding team at the Indianapolis 500. He has more than 30 years of welding experience and is known for his easy-to-follow instruction methods.

The video presentation starts with the basics and also includes the difficult welds encountered when working on chromoly fuselages. The close-up video shows exactly what the welds look like and how to achieve them. The DVD will help both beginning welders and those with some welding experience as they learn skills to improve their skills.

TIG Welding: Chromoly has an introductory EAA-member price of $26.95 (plus shipping and handling) or $36.95 for non-members. It can be ordered through EAA, either online or by calling 800-564-6322.

This new DVD is one of a series of instructional videos available from EAA, covering all facets of building and restoring aircraft.
