Re: MIG TIG Or ARC?

Only ever done stick welding and oxy welding. Oxy welding is great for small jobs (can get away with sunglasses too! lack of UV rays is nice). You have much more control which shows in the result. I do oxy when possible.

Learning stick after doing oxy is easy. Watching stick welders try oxy for the first time is fun.

Doing plumbing (for now at least) requires portable things like bottles and stick welders. Seeing as one uses oxy for soldiering copper pipes the bottles are always available for a bit of welding. However stick is almost always used due to material thickness. The guy I worked for had contracts for plumbing maintenance for 2 foundries (2/3 of all his work) which was great for learning.

Iíd assume TIG is harder than oxy and MIG is easier than stick (simply because my mum has done mig heh).
