So thanks to you guys I finally bought a TIG welder! It's been over a lustrum since I last messed with one so I am very very very rusty. Also I had remembered wrong, and need to buy 100% argon to make it go properly apparently, so the welds are kinda dirty (the MIG welder uses an Argon/CO2 mix), but I was getting the hang of maintaining a weld before I came in just now to get more tea, the TIG welder will allow me to weld smaller, more delicate things without getting spatter everywhere. THANKS EVERYONE!
