I am going to attempt to Tig weld some titanium. What I have read thus
far indicates it is critical to weld in an Argon atmosphere so I have
made a little manifold to flood the entire piece in Argon. The other
important factor is cleaning the piece before welding. Any ideas of
what to use for this? Flus? If so what kind?

Thanks

I admit I don't know anything about welding titanium per se, but TIG
means Tunsten in Inert Gas. The "torch" for TIG provides a inert gas
nozzle around the tunsten electrode in the weld area to prevent
oxidation/or other compounds from forming with the molten metal. The
inert gas ( Argon) provides the atmoshpere so you do not need a "flux".
If one is TIG welding pipe, it is common to purge through the pipe
witht he argon also allowing the inert gas to excap through the open
to-be-welded pipe joint.
