Ive been using this for about a year with my dynasty welders

reasons:
1 a pointed tungsten is needed for the dynasty to work properly
2 thoriated was the only thing that i could get to work effectively but doesnt hold up well on AC (nodules)
3 thoriated is radio active
4 sick of re grinding my tungsten constantly
5 ceriated balled up and wouldnt establish an arc

so I was looking for a better option and stumbled onto this stuff through one of my suppliers

the package doesnt say who makes it or what alloys are in it

DOES ANYONE KNOW?

It is about double the price
but I dont dip it much so the price isnt a big problem
Ill pay extra to keep the ability to father children

but any way im pretty happy with the performance
it takes AC current without developing nodules like thoriated
it holds a point on AC as well as anything else or better

I would recommend anyone to give it a try
