Sounds like GH has a cold-wire, continuous-feed TIG. It's almost like MIG welding without the spatter. Really nice for long seams & also for round parts when used with a rotary welding positioner.

sorry for the mix up it is a AC/DC ARC / TIG WELDER WITH A COBRA ALU PUSH/PULL MIG SET-UP THE MIG PART USES THE WESTINGHOUSE WELDER AS THE POWER SORCE THE TIG IS BUILT IN THE MACHINE JUST GOT THIS OFF E BAY AND IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING A CART TO HOLD THE MACHINE AND THE SEPARATE WATER COOLER BY THE WAY CAN I USE AUTO ANTI FREEZE FOR THE WATER COOLED TIG

You can use distilled water if your shop temp stays above 32 degrees. If it regularly goes lower, Miller sells antifreeze http://store.cyberweld.com/lowconan.html

All the manufacturers specifically say don't use automotive antifreeze as it will void any warranty.

See what is recommended by Miller. Do not use HF when you are miging--bad things can happen.
