  • Electrodes and Cup sizes??

    I think im down to the last 1 electrode that came with the welder when i bought it, so need to pick up some additional, is there recommended type/brand to get? Or is there a guide on picking the right size electrode and cup sizes based on the project?

    I read thru this link
    http://www.millerwelds.com/resources...n-to-electrode

    and there was mention of welding calculator, found this one: https://www.millerwelds.com/resource...ing-calculator
    But is there something just as good say as App or something i can load on my tablet that i use while in the shop to look up information.

    thank you

          Those images are a bit blurry (low resolution) and the thoughtful advice offered by others may not help you as much as CK's "Technical Specifications for TIG Welding": http://www.ckworldwide.com/technical_specs.pdf .
