which mixture of argon / CO2 should I use?

Just bought a small 125 mig welder. I will be welding 3/16" steel. Should I use 90/10 or 75/25 shielding gas?


I would go with the 75/25

smoother arc, less spatter, and you cant get into high amperage stuff anyway with a 125 mig.

otherwise the 90/10 would let you do some spray transfer mig for thick stuff.
