Hi Brian,

I do not know if you have TIGed much before but I bit the bullet on a TIG welder about 2 years ago. Very satisfying and loads more control than MIG. There is a learning curve though and keeping the tunsgsten close but not too close takes some getting used to - mostly solved with fixturing for your hand to run along.

Oh,  and I now have to weld with my reading glasses on.

Enjoy

All the best,

Martin.

I have found that I do better welding with my glasses off - they are progressive lenses, and rarely can I get them in the right position. I've tried putting a magnifying glass in the helmet, but that didn't really work. So, glasses off, and I get my head close to the action, and I can see what's going on. FWIW, in addition to presbyopia (sp?), I've been near-sighted all my life, so that may be part of why this works for me.
