tig is pretty similar to oxy welding so theres a bit of overlap there.
Sometimes you just want to booger weld something together really quick. I use my MIG way more than my TIG, but I think it is because I am impatient.Beyond that, I can't even think of one thing I would ever use the MIG for. I'll hang onto it for a minute, but will probably sell it for a loss. Still brand new.
You can totally MIG with argon, that is the gas to use if MIG welding stainless steel. I have a bottom feeder TIG I`ve only ever tried to use twice with expectantly horrible results, had to sell my flagship MIG rig a while ago and it FUCKING HURT so based on that I`d say hang onto it, it has it`s uses. That being said I gotta get myself an argon bottle and learn how to TIG as soon as my budget allows it.I'm not embarrassed that I don't know anything about welding, but there will be many stupid questions so I can learn.
I stacked the MIG &TIG to save space and to share an argon cylinder. Just found out the MIG uses mixed Ar/CO2. Stupid mistake.

That's a fucked up situation. I'm sorry you gotta deal with that shitOne week before my first welding class.
Have to admit that I'm scared. Omicron is raging here. Saw on the news (a couple of days ago) that 1 in 5 COVID tests are positive in L.A. County. A test center here in Glendale was at almost 33% positivity rate. Unbelievable, even to the experts.
I've been concerned about surviving COVID because of my cancer, radiation, hormone therapy, etc. Now, after 3 doses of Moderna, I'm worried because maybe I'll survive COVID, but it could cause my cancer to progress faster. Then, I'm fucked.
Still planning on going, but I could change my mind at any second.
Course in June is the same. I need to take it before I get into the class where I can do TIG. So, wouldn't be starting TIG until Fall. May as well start learning on my own.is june a better course? i know a couple transplantees that have kicked the new covid without much fuss.. not sure if thats relatable.. but it does sound like this new shit is a bitch... and theres no saying what other bullshit they can come up with by june eiher..
Yep, I was there. Instructor has omicron and didn't show.So....................was today day 1?
