TIG welding

AS i have read your situation. it seems like you are novice about welding. In this regard, i would suggest you tig welder as it is quite easy and simple to use this welder.

i was stick welding by age 8, went to MIG a few years later, and have always been the most comfortable with it. I was advised to try a TIG for doing a gas tank where you can't have any pinholes and for aluminum. I bought one, tried it, and i realized to late it didn't have the settings necessary to do aluminum. I never got 'good' at it on steel. Surface has to be perfect, probes have to be ground at the right angle and direction for gas flow, seemed way harder to me than MIG.

I've also been told that TIG is easier if you've never welded at all, but tough if you learned stick or MIG first.

also had a little buzz box MIG for a while. it had the core necessary, but w/o having a true shield gas, the welds never came out well for me. I have Miller TIG and MIG now.
