    You can start either way, but I roll into it. It is important to roll out when stopping to prevent cratering.

    Red tungsten will not ball up as well as 2% ceriated or 2% lanthanated.
    Personally I keep Red for DC, and ceriated and lanthanated for AC.

    For some reason 1.5% lanthanated self destructs as rapidly as Thoriated, so I been giving them out to the newbies to kill off on AC. Red is my all time favorite for steel.

    I use a belt sander to sharpen my tungstens, with a pencil like taper.
