I just bought my first torch outfit today (Victor Super Ranger II) and asked for some welding rod. The guy picked up fluxed brazing rod. I then asked for mild steel rod. He only had some 1/16" rod. I then dipped into a box of 3/32" rod and said, 'this is what i want'.
Well, he says, 'that is TIG rod'. I said, 'yeah? It's mild steel right?' He didn't seem to know.
Isn't "TIG" rod just copper coated mild steel rod? I should be able to use it when Oxy/Acetylene welding, right?
