I have both. Im ambidextrous and I suck at Tig welding lol.
I always get aluminum to diluted or too hot. End up warping everything.

Some people pick it up quick, Im just not good with the torch.

Contaminate? Warping, - you just have to slow down , -take breaks. And/Or learn how to set up properly/ dial it in.

I've had professional welders help out and I still have issues. I can do everything but aluminum, it's a damn demon or something.

Anything except 6xxx or 4xxx is nearly impossible for me to tig. I'm sure if I got good at it, it would look and hold much better I just don't have time.

Def not the welder, it's all on me. I not patient at all!

Ahh, - you just have to do it right once, then it'll come easy. That's how it was for me anyway.

If any of that makes sense to yuh
