Nevertheless, there is some controversy regarding the proper ending of the Proem . While Lines -30 are reported by several additional sources (Diogenes Laertius, Plutarch, Clement, and Proclus), Simplicius alone quotes lines -32. In contrast, Sextus continued his block quotation of the Proem after line with the lines currently assigned to C/DK -7, as if these immediately followed. Diels-Kranz separated Sextus’ quotation into distinct fragments (1 and 7) and added Simplicius’ lines to the end of C/DK 1. The vast majority of interpreters have followed both these moves. However, there may be good reasons to challenge this reconstruction (compare Bicknell 1968; Kurfess 2012, 2014).
TIP TIG pipe fill pass welds are typically made 100 - 400 % faster than regular TIG. No foot control is required, one or two hands can be used to control the torch, lowest weld smoke, no spatter, no slag and no grinding. Look how easy it is to make a pipe weld that is superior weld quality than regular TIG.
In contrast to regular TIG, with TIP TIG there is minimum weld starts and stops. The less oxidized TIP TIG welds are the cleanest welds you will ever see. The TIP TIG weld HAZ produced should be the smallest. The agitated TIP TIG welds should always provide superior side wall fusion with less pore / inclusion defects and the weld stresses should be the lowest.
