Been MIGing for years, had a go at TIG and sucked big time. Thought it was about time to try again. Is an 85 amp inverter (Italian Fimer one) a good starter. Not wanting to invest a heap in case I still can't get the technique down. From what I've read, 85 amp is enough for up to 3mm, which is the maximum I'd be attempting. Got ARC and MIG for thicker stuff anyway.
Let me know guys!!!
What sort of trouble are you having while welding, Maybe post up some pics of your welds, i assume you are welding steel and using DC
Yep, it was just mild steel and DC. The main issue I had was laying beads without firmly attaching the torch to the workpiece. I'm looking at purchasing a TIG to play around with so can't show you any welds.
More after your opinions on if an 85 amp DC inverter TIG is too small or about right as a cheap starter. It's $200 NZD plus a torch.
