    D-back,, Your post makes a lot of sense and explains some of my problems with consistency. Every time I grind my tungsten The arc acts slightly different. I may need to look into figuring out a way to get my angles down a little better. I grind and point my tips by hand and that very well could be my problem. Thanks, Adam

    Thumbs up 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.

    Thumbs up 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.
