One thought on Defining Tungsten for TIG Welding

  • The average diy’er or home car guy will use one or two different tungsten’s for all his welding, unless your working on exotic metals or in the food industry you don’t need every tungsten in your box. It can be as confusing as all the settings on a high end welder at times. I have made a couple of plastic coated “cheat sheets” (wire feed, rod, voltage, tungsten, gas ect) for each welder and it makes things simple as I may not use one or the other for weeks at a time. Personally I use the red and gold for most of my tig welding and have no trouble. Nice explanation of tungsten types. How about shielding gases?
