Hey guys. I have been trying to save my pennies to get a C25 tank for my 140, but the first 80 lb tank around here is $180, and my family seems to come up with ways to spend my fun money faster than I can save it.
So I happen to spot 20 lb CO2 welding bottle on CraigsList for$35 and there are TONS of opinions out on the internet as to which one is "better".
The generally accepted "facts" seem to be that both are "good", CO2 is cheaper to use, promotes deeper penetration but can have more spatter. There are references to needing to use different wire to get the same results but I cant find enough info to confirm that.
So I am looking for experience folks opinions on how CO2 will work with the 140. Can I use the included regulator or do I have to buy a separate one?
