Please help me sort through my confusion.
I have some money to spare now.
Right now, right or wrong, I have a "pressure regulator" on my Argon cylinder. This regulator has a T handle and regulates output PRESSURE in PSI.
I set the pressure so that when welding steel, some rust (oxidation) appeared after welding. Then I increased pressure by a little bit. I think that it is a little below 10 PSI.
But, perhaps, I am doing it all wrong. Maybe I am wasting argon gas, for example.
Would I benefit from adding on, or replacing, my regulator with a flowmeter?
Is a flowmeter an add-on to a regulator or a replacement?
Can I have both?
Would you recommend some good, brand name flowmeter if you think that it is useful to have one?
