Starting mag on fire is a bit of a myth unless it's magnesium dust or filings. For doing thin magnesium you need some some sort of heat sink. Very easy to turn it into a blob of what used to be an expensive part.
I'm supposed to be going on a welding course in Jan for special metals, 5 weeks of practicing funfunfun.
Good looking rack by the way. Sounds wrong though saying it....
you did a real nice job on that rack !! most of the mag ive tig welded is frustrating cause its mostly been like a chainsaw or motorcyclrcase,pressure die-cast ,very porous under the surface and you really end up playing in a mud puddle .you have to keep adding filler untill the shit all floats to the top.tig welding aluminum on the other hand i find quite rewarding because it is relatively easy to produce nice looking beads
