What to use keep TIG from Freezing?
Just got me an older Union-Carbide [Linde] HDA-200 with water cooled tig [40 foot] and Rack with wheels--70 foot stick leads--Miller water tank and pump---Bunch of steel---Boxs of Consumables--welding Helmet parts-- Can run it on 60AMP single phase--25 foot extension cord--And a Oxy. Tank [Big One] I can exchange for a Argon tank and just pay for Gas & Re-certification of $26--All for $450
Anyways the manual says to use Methanol mix distilled water for freezing protecting? Cause of the HF-- Was thinking there has to be something out there now that will work and not pay $ for Miller stuff they make? Alot of coolants now did not have back then,
I,ve been welding all my life but been Long time since did any tig but just thought I,d have one to do some welding for People around? Been talking and theres now place around here that does welding like this so we,ll see.
