    I guess I could fire up a tig then have a friend hold my wire feeder button down on the s22a and go for it

          You could adapt a spare MIG feeder to feed cold wire TIG.... it has been done...
          or buy a pricey commercial one....

                It's so wonderful to finally have someone of your caliber around this forum Bruce. I concede to you sir, you're a better tig welder than me. Please feel free to be rude to as many people as you like, you've certainly earned it.

                  Nobody earns the right to be rude where I'm at, we are all here for the same reasons and that makes us all friends in my book... we always cut our friends down with smart-*** remarks but that's just us guys everywhere...good work and knowledge is highly respected among most of us. I appreciate the thread topic myself just because it did get me thinking about filler techniques..so with no fun I'll say thanks Bruce for starting the topic, it did make at least 1 think and thats why we're here.

                        You could rig up a pen style feed wand with a pushbutton like this factory made unit...

                        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NIKvURKs_s

                        think using a MIG gun would be pretty clumsy

                          I agree...I have an old mig wand that got crushed...I'll peel the head off and strip it down to the inner cable and have a tube the size of an ink pen....it has to work. I'll post a pic tomorrow if it's successful...I'll post one even if its a disaster

                            I watched the video...now I'm going to make that bad mig gun into that. That would be helpful on long tig runs...another reason why we're here...that's awesome and I can adapt that mig wand to plug right in and feed by trigger controll....thanks for that H80N

                              COOL..!!!

                              looking forward to seeing your results....

                              no reason it should not work... probably bit of a learning curve though....
