mig vs stick

is mig harder or easier than stick welding?


most people will say mig is easier.

for general non critical welding, mig is a bit easier to learn...its also easier to fail a welding certification test with mig.

the reason mig is considered easier is because the wire that feeds thru the torch eliminates the need to constantly maintain the arc length that is required with stick welding.

if you learn stick first, mig is pretty easy to learn....but it is not necessary to learn stick in order to mig weld.
