    Did you mill and tap the block or is it an item for purchase?

    Yeah,

    The Triangle wave is for AC on aluminum. You'd probably do better on Square wave to start on aluminum, or just DC on mild steel with no mill scale.

Any thoughts on what metal you would like to see hit with the triangle?

    I'd add a couple of ball valves in.

    This might not be advisable, but I was thinking to use ball valves and one outlet to choke down the argon and get a reasonable mix when you want to mix. If you are just doing TIG then you can turn the CO2 completely off and only run argon gas. Any thoughts?

    If you want that, just get this and turn it backwards. It works.

    Here's the first video clip of the 221STi that I've seen uploaded to YouTube.

    Of course, at 23 seconds, there's not much to it. But the guy suggests that more is forthcoming.

    Just close the deal on the 280 ft.³ bottle of argon completely full for $125. The TIG pedal comes in tomorrow. It's time to do some aluminum can torture test on myself

    Wow,

    That's a monster bottle, but bigger is better with gas, and that's a heck of a price, too.

    Yeah, let the games begin!

    I saw it on offer up and I could not pass up that kind of deal. The thing weighs a ton but gas will be cheaper and I can weld for about a year on a 280 based on how often I'm using the welder.
