Today I learned the simplest yet very effective way to grind Tungsten electrodes. Through the couple years I've been welding, I'd never thought to do this, but hey, when you're working in a shop with guys who have years of fabrication experience for off road race teams, these are the little things you pick up.

Anyways, step 1, put electrode into cordless drill bit chuck. Step 2, turn on dedicated tungsten grinding wheel (or a belt sander if you dont have a dedicated grinder). Step 3, hold drill at angle, spin the electrode with the drill, and grind your electrode tip. Perfectly conical and nicely pointed electrodes every damn time.

Tip for all TIG Welders
