    Question Maybe your favorite, but what do you use most?

    I saw the pole on favorite processes and I think it's a little too late for that question as I think we can all agree that tig is our favorite process and the results have shown that else where. However, what I and perhaps maybe you would like to know is "what process do you use most" at work and at home. This may prove to be interesting?

    So Far The Mig Was Use For The Big Stuff
    (trailers ,tools, Benches.....) But In A Near Future I Probably Use The Tig More Fore The Custom Made Furnitures And Smaller Projects ( Art , Sculpture) And I Will Fit The Regulator On The Oxy-acetylene Maybe Tonight ( Brand New Set) .
    I Am Starting A Tig Course Tomorrow .

    Talking new TIG, want to use it more

    my MIG gets the most use but i am hoping to get more TIG done. aluminum is much more $$ so i don't have access to it as much. probably all the repair stuff around the house has been MIG and or flux-core. but for artsy fartsy stuff i'm working on now TIG. (till i run out of aluminum )
    i only weld at home not for work.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com

    Almost 100%of my biz brought to me is tig on aluminum. The rest is spoolgun aluminum and a little stainless tig.
    It's just what I went looking for and only that would do. So that is now all I get asked to do!!
    For me on my own stuff playing with steel is a real treat...sorta weird in a backwards kinda way I know, but true nontheless.

    For the past 27 years or so all I have really ever done is steel. I have a couple of guys that work for me and are really talented with AL, Stainless and sheet. But for me, make it steel please. And after all those years of stick'n and mig'n I've finally learned how to tig. But still I would have to improve just to suck at it. In any event I hang around here a lot and have learned a ton about tig and AL without having to embarrass myself by asking the guys that work for me I know they are here somewhere, can't hide secrets for too long..

    Default OA for me

    I have almost every technology at my disposal, and for my work on antique cars, aircraft, motorcycles, and doing modern sheet aluminum fabrication, cant beat the torch.

    I use my mig more than my little stick , cause the little stick is in my blacksmith shop to tack stuff up. I like tigging but don`t get to unless i use my cousin`s tig . Also like oxy-fuel (brazing ) with my little Harris port-a-torch set! (guess cause its kinda like tigging)
