Without Argon I can only make the shittiest of welds. I’ve got a noisebridge bank card, so mostly need to know that its okay to spend money on this and also looking for a local recommendation to get it filled up.
We last refilled it with a 75/25% Argon/CO2 mixture at the airgas store located at 25th and Illinois; I’m not sure what other places carry welding gas nearby and recall the refill being a bit expensive. We transported it in a bike trailer although it was kind of heavy and slow going.
Sounds like a discretionary fund thing to me. So yes buy it
