Looked at the Lincoln website Oz, no sign of a pulse mig welder. They
certainly do a pulse Tig welder. Care to guess again? No thought not,
found out telling pork pies again huh.

Only a clueless idiot could some up with a comment like that.

Spray transfer is getting old, and while it works well (particularly on
aluminium) the clean up is major of you don't want the welds to be obvious.

Which is a huge advantage.
I'd still prefer tig myself, but only because I've been doing it for quite a
while and am reasonably proficient at it. However, if you're bringing an
inexperienced guy into the shop tig is something that takes a reasonably
long time to learn to do well. It also has it's disadvantages as you get
older and your hands aren't as steady as they once were.

One of the most expensive forms of welding around.

I know this isn't PC, but a mate of mine actually has a few beers prior
to welding. He won't do it for any cutting or grinding or anything, but
for a steadier hand.
I'm hoping I don't ever have to consider that at all (as I wouldn't do
