    great on low amp's

    they have excellent low amp starts.i use the 1/16" for low amp. you will really like them. Cerated might have a slight edge here (from reading its stats), but they both work so nicely i could not tell it in real life usage. as i definitely prefer the 2% lanthanated big time at higher amps and on AC i just went all Lanthanated. i just did not feel any advantage to the Cerated. i suppose if i was doing a lot of like 5amp DC welding i might look again at the cerated but with its shorter life span ....... i think lanthanated would still win out for me in the long run. but by all means give it a try, see what you like best.
    thanks for the help

      Tungsten

      I am wondering about other peoples thoughts on this.
      I am currently successfully using Lanthanted tungstens on mild steel, stainless and Aluminum. It will form ball on AC for aluminum but it is a very small ball.
