Lanse thanks for the reply.. I will check into the lease... I have a friend that owns some NAPA stores and He sells bottles there I am going to see what he can get me.. I am going to order some 2% red Tungsten as I have read a lot about it.. What size would be best to get 1/16 or 3/32? same goes for filler what would the best size be? I was saying i did not under stand the voltage the machine can either be run on 110 or on 220.. Idk if it will be a good product as i said my first experience with them. I would have loved to buy a miller maxstar 150 but couldn't convince myself to spend that...

Yeah, I know how that goes :)

I would get 3/32" tungstens for most things, 1/16 for thin stuff, and even thinner if you plan to work on super thin materials. I'd get filler in the 1/16 and 3/32 sizes, maybe a little 1/8" but only for welding up gaps, if thats something you'll end up doing...

Most Dual-Voltage machines will have another plug, or a cord or something which goes on the stock 220v plug, and plugs into a 110v outlet. Thats how my Longevity plasma is... You can see the setup in one of the earlier parts of this video:

The 140st actually came without a plug and you buy one and wire it up 2 what you want... I have my mig and stick to do thick stuff so I am going to keep it at 110 to make thin stuff for my pulling tractors and to fix sheet metal on the tractors we restore... Im going to start out with 10 of the 25 1/16 electrodes and 5 lbs of the er70s6 to practice with and go from there... I watched some of your videos they look good.... Ill be sure to upload some of my projects once i get this thing going...
