well, we looked it over and have been talking about it in class a lot and I really like the TIG welding...it looks challenging, awesome and very attractive.
So basically, that's what I'm going for...a stick/TIG machine (i think that's how they come?). We are running millers that have settings for tig/mig/stick and 2 other ones (flux core and something else maybe?). I'm not exactly sure...we just started stick yesterday.
Tomorrow they're letting us jump around and try out everything...to get some hands on (part of the safety course on safely running all the equipment). I'm planning on having a few hours tied up on TIG to see what I can do.
I'd like to have something at home though...to practice on the weekends...and just like you guys said...something small. I don't need anything huge, just something that's 115v and that will do the job for the metals i'll be using.
I'll take your advice...I won't be getting one for a few months, but I will definitely keep what you said in mind, Greg.
Thanks guys and I'll be hanging around...
