'you got a bottle of what? for christmas'...

I was having a chat with one of the locals ...in my local.
Not somewhere I've frequented for quite a while.
Partly due to a feeling of nothing in common and I'd put the 'fitting in' golf clubs away.

Ever felt like 'a stranger in a strange land'?
Could have been the puff  I guess haha

"So you you bought a tig welder and kit for £390 quid... and then had to get an argon gas bottle for £100 or so quid... and all to weld up 2 brackets?... that you'd had someone weld in position for you but you decided cut up? 
and you tell me you can't weld?...

Very sensible going for a decent sized bottle. I can recommend the MIG Welding forum for advice on all kinds of welding (including TIG) post some pictures up and they will likely tell you what you are doing wrong. If you are melting the tungsten then your gas flow could be wrong or you could be too far from the work.
