    Well, got my first MIG welder. It's the ReadyWelder II that uses multi-batteries. But I don't like the flux core wire and it's ready for gas. So what do I ask the Welders Supply for? Argon 90% or something like that. And what kinda wire do I ask for.............it uses standard 1 or 2 pound spools, rolls.

    Only welding steel for now...............

    c25 for gas thats the mix for 75% argon. Use any mig wire, I use Forney a lot cheaper than lincoln wire. And another tip use one size to large of a contact tip and you will run into less feeeding problems, for intance use a .35 tip with .30 wire.
