I have to agree ... I have returned to using Gas more and more with the boot lid work I am currently doing. MIG is great but the control you have using Gas is amazing and as my confidence returns my welds are so good that I do not even need to grind them off.

Welding is all about the users skill, not the choice of welding machine ... and patience
