        I really like MIG but TIG I get the most enjoyment out of. Sometimes I could MIG something and I TIG it just because I like it. Never use stick anymore, probably been 4-5 yrs since I last used it. I have to start the Bobcat everynow and then just to let it run I dont do any work outside the shop so MIG or TIG pretty much covers it.

          Never learned TIG. Can do MIG but not that enjoyable for me. Been around stick all my life so that's what I enjoy. Build most of my stuff out of oilfield scrap, which can be pretty rusty and the MIG don't like it none to well, so my little Thunderbolt is the most practical for me.

                  I think welding is all of them. I wouldn't want to do without any. Oxy-Act is a favorite and used often, love the process.
                  But favorite to run? I'd have to say "MIG".
                  I went most of my life without one because I couldn't see a need for it. I could weld most anything with stick or gas. I'm sorry for that. I had to do a bunch of sheet metal (and wanting to try it) so bought a HH187, one of the finest running machine ever. Every time I use it I am amazed, boy could I have used that over the years.
                  I then added a like new MM200. Wow. Neat stuff.

                            I went with Tig, but SMAW would be a close second.

                              Even though all my certs are in SMAW, I use FCAW/MIG on most my projects. Loved to do more stick however.
