    What's so hard about using a gas set up???
    It's one valve, open it up, set it once, it's good to go.
    Check before welding just to be sure, and weld.
    My pressure has never changed until the bottle is empty.
    It's not like it's a 25 minute set up procedure every time you weld!!

    Shielding Gas is great! But not practical for MIG Welding outside.
    Shielding gas gives a cleaner weld, Better Penetration, and you can do thin metals with better control!

    TIG is great for heavy jobs and precise "stack of dimes" welds on steel, especially stainless!
    You need a DC TIG to do Aluminum but even the Inversion welders like the Miller Diversion series do a great job!

    Tig welding aluminum requires a AC machine.
