    As JTSHARP posted...

    Stick & TIG want Constant Current

    MIG/MAG want Constant Voltage

    The resources section has the explanations...

    a bit of reading....

    LOL I'm sure all the answers to all...(almost) the questions are there and from reliable source, but for lazy guys like us is it possible to narrow the search... there's probably 2 lifes worth of knowledge to acquire there.

    I tought i just finished reading the internet last week... I must have skipped a chapter or 2

    This article by Miller is pretty good. Different CC welders perform differently.
