    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    In welding ( not wielding ) terminology, MIG stands for 'metal inert gas' which uses an auto feeding wire that both arcs and also is a weld filler acting in a shielding oxygen free gas to avoid impurities. TIG is 'tungsten inert gas' which has an fixed tungsten electrode which makes the arc to which a filler wire is manually added.

    There you are ........and off you go! :-)

    TIG has a lot higher heat input and also a slower travel speed than Mig, In my opinion TIG is also a LOT more difficult to perfect.

    if your looking to do "Neat" welding on small items, then go for TIG, if your looking at welding larger items with a ticker wall thickness go for MIG

    I do Gas pipeline welding inspection for a job and most of the welding is MMA , so is different again lol

    tig definately has a travel speed that CAN be slower than other forms of electrical welding but all the variables decide that such as thickness(thicker-higher amps = faster travel speed),desired pass size(welding procedures often ask for certain root and cap run sizes) and material type(aluminium for example does require slightly higher amperage but pulsed to avoid subsidence and given the high heat soaking charteristics a higher travel speed)...biggest advantage with tig is control,can be equated to gas welding though of course far more modern,can be very finely tuned to weld extremely thin materials
