    Anyone ever tried using a single carbon arc torch and feeding filler?

          I have to chime in on this one> It is possible to practice some of the technique of TIG welding with out gas of any kind or even a machine. A long ago friend of mine told me about getting practice while watching TV. hth! you ask! Well, he took a rig off the power cable and got one of his wife's stainless cook pots and sat on the couch practicing walking the cup while watching Andy Griffith.

              "tis but a a flesh wound"

              Actually thinking about it I guess you could practice TIG without a welder or gas. How about another $50,000 Miller Live Arc video game console but for TIG

                    what about gas welding with a oxy-acetylene torch? If you want to practice technique, this would be better than sitting in front of a TV. I spent many months practicing welding. It was an excellent progression from gas to TIG. the transition was basically just learning to set up the machine.
