    Did he know you were TIG welding with the gas? Either way, remember that if he knew how to weld, he'd be making a lot more money as a weldor than as a salesman. C-25 mix has very limited uses, just as ALL gases do. That's why there are so many gases. He's an idiot. You can tell him we said so...

    I didn't know if it was the same trip or not as the TIG purchase. If it wasn't, don't expect them to remember anything.

    Like George says, 100% argon for TIG, unless you need a helium/argon mix for rare jobs.

    100% Argon for TIG nothing else.

    although I have used 100% Argon to MIG weld and what I got was super clean welds (dont know if strong) but clean and nicer looking than the ones I get with Co2

    bet it seems strange to see your question now.
    i'm just taking a guess but you don't use C-25 to tig any more do ya.

    TIG can be frustrating to learn, but if you stick with it in time you will really enjoy it. just keep the practice time short enough to stay fun. if it gets too frustrating do some thing else for a wile and come back to it later.

    too many people start out welding by getting a TIG welder thinking thats the one to learn and get frustrated because its not as easy as it looks on TV. keeping in mind a lot of the guys on TV welding cant TIG weld right anyway.
    before long the little coupons will really get boring and you wont want to do it any more. find a simple project to do instead. so what if it turns out bad, its more fun than a lil piece of flat steel and you will learn more from it also. keep it around to remind you later how far you have come.after all we all need a laugh once in a wile. i'll bet rocketeir is thinking its funny to see such a silly question now. but at the time it was a big concern. TIG takes time, don't try to rush it. and don't give up on it. some day you will be really glad you stuck it out and learned to TIG . sounds like you are lucky to have rocketeir close enough to help you out. seeing is a big help, books just cant really explain it the way seeing it can.
    good luck with it and enjoy.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped
