I did bend some tungsten the old fashoned way- I lit off, formed a good
puddle on a stout chunk of scrap, then used my Leatherman to put a
slight bend in the red-hot tungsten. It worked like a charm! I was
able to keep gas coverage while having my arc come out at about a 30
degree down angle from a horizontal torch.
This worked like a charm! I was able to do good looking flat fillets
with a horizontal torch angle.
Thanks to all those who gave me input.
