gas question

by Lee
(nebraska)

I'm kinda new to tig welding. Can I use the same gas from mig welding for tig welding?

-------------------------------------------------

No, it wont work.

you will need 100 percent argon for tig welding.

for mig, pure co2 or 75/25 argon/co2 is needed....except for mig aluminum which needs argon.
