    Auto-Darken masks for TIG

    Chances are at this point im buying a Syncro 180 sd! the first time and only time i tried TIG i couldnt see what i was doing. i could only see the arc, not my filler or the joint i was trying to get! i would assume the mask was bad or didnt have the right setting.

    replied to TIG or MIG for alloy products
    i agree TIG is better maintenance because you can weld pretty much everything(?)! it does take longer to do though but thats okay because you have the advantage of well... doing everthing ! what pops to mind for MIG... chassis building!
