lmao....good you screamed, made me happy I didn't start tigging with my D200 yet Anyway, i would have read the manual and read the GTAW handbook before I started...Darn good advice for me
Keep it coming....

Another noob tig welder here.
I have a new Syncrowave 200 and like others on this thread have been doing a LOT of research. Transformer. Inverter. Square wave. Advanced square wave. And apparently those are two completely different animals. My tig welding with the 200 thus far has been confined to mild steel and stainless as I try to move out of the "mud dauber" phase. I must say that my first beads left a lot to be desired, and I must hold the record for sticking the tungsten in the puddle.
Where this thread is concerned, and my question. My research would seem to indicate that transformer machines (Syncrowave) are confined to using pure tungsten, balled, for aluminum. Inverters (Dynasty) - 1.5% lanthanated with a truncated point. BUT, I keep coming across threads or suggestions in some of the literature that would indicate using 1.5% lanthanated with a truncated point on aluminum with transformer machines. So, is anyone with a Syncrowave using pointed lanthanated on aluminum, or am I confined to pure tungsten balled when I get to aluminum? At the rate that I am progressing on mild steel, that will be awhile.
