Welding up extra holes

Several holes needed to be sealed, So I tried TIG welding. Not at all easy, especially vertical welds. Probably not ready for nuclear reactor welding, but they should be OK. I used 5086 aluminum plate and 5356 rod, both 1/16 and 3/32 I had to prop the plate from behind.IMG_9424IMG_9429IMG_9430IMG_9431IMG_9433IMG_9438IMG_9439IMG_9441
