    Oh

    SiBr, Silver bronze and aluminum bronze on hand

    Not used often but grab it when its priced at or below scrap metal money

    An 80 pound tank lasts me a pretty good while and will lay down several many pounds of beads.

    The 240 pounder goes a very long way.

    Used it three times today. Gotta love practicing on customer stuff.

    The pieces I did for my customer turned out as nice or nicer than if I'd mig'd them.

    Later in the day I screwed around with some scrap, welding together dissimilar thicknesses. Biggest problem I had was feeding in the filler so that I didn't undercut the thicker material.

    Big lesson learned;
    When I'm tacking together pieces with my mig I never let anyone else hold them because I know where to hold and when to let go so I don't burn myself. Burned the end of one of my fingers bad today with the tig. That part's different.

    Congrats, that's a good machine- I worked with one for a few years.

    some good basics here: http://www.weldingtipsandtricks.com/tig-welding.html

    and the miller forum is good too. Mostly the trick is just practice.
    Do a lot of it and test your pieces, you'll get the feel for it as you put the time in.
