    Weldcraft.com catalog has a chart for tungstens and what they recommend. Think they are mostly gearing towards the inverter machines...Since you have the transformer type, I'd do what FusionKing said.

                    I have heard a lot of you like red(Thoriated)which are radio active, can be used on aluminum and as an all around tungsten but not the best choice for aluminum. They work but the ball seems to develope off kilter at times or small ball will develope off center if that makes sense. I didn't realize the were
                    radio active. Guess I should have paid more attention(thanks forum members).
                    I have a supply in several sizes and will use them(carefully)on steel which they are recommended and do well with DC.
                    What I want is a good replacement for pure(green) to be used on aluminum ac that is not ACTIVE, holds its tip, lasts longer etc. There are so many choices, I'm confused.
                    Anyone using a square wave machine and having good luck with a particular
                    tungsten on aluminum, please chime in and explain why. Thanks.

                    I now use only lanthanated for mild steel, stainless and aluminum. I first tried ceriated as a replacement for thoriated and later tried the lanthanated.
                    The ceriated worked ok but I think I can get a little more amperage capability from the lanthanted.
                    I currently use a Syncrowave 350.

                      Blue gets my vote also.

                      Heck, all along I thought the tungsten was color coded to the machine.

                        I use red- coded thoriated for everything. I try to keep the tip out of the puddle and, if you can, you won't be resharpening them very frequently.

                        For those of you who aren't convinced of the safety of the thoriated tungstens, please send them to me. I'll gladly pay postage.
