    you list the 3/32 tubgsten electrode for $25.80 but on cart it is $ 43.15. what is the real price?
    1 Answer
    The price of $25.80 that you see next to the 3/32 size is an adder. You will notice the + sign in front of the price.. The base price for the Anchor E3 Tungsten Electrode is $17.35 for the .020 size to obtain the price for the 3/32 size you need to add the $25.80 to the $17.35 for a total $43.15

    Welds nicely.
    I'm very new to TIG welding. These weld very nicely. Good arc control and I like I can use the same electrode for different metals.

    Best out there. PERIOD!
    Lasts forever. Great on mild, stainless, and aluminum. I can get needle point sharp ends by using a belt sander and chucking the tungsten in a drill. I switched to this tungsten when it first came out and I own a Fabrication shop and this tungsten has by far helped my quality of welds and increased production.
    ProsLong lasting, works on everything, less hazardous.
    ConsNone. Maybe the price but for how it performs and lasts it's worth every penny.

    If you TIG aluminum you have to try this!
    I received a sample of these tungsten electrodes at a welding show and after waiting months for my local weld shop to start carrying it decided to order here. I weld strictly aluminum and this tungsten is by far the best!!!! As advertised this tungsten runs cooler, holds its ball shape better and last longer between sharpening than anything else I have used.

    I will be ordering again!
    Prosworks better than advertised.
    Conscost a little more than red or green, but worth it.

    Christmas gift - But have purchased Miller Mig Welder and other items here last Christmas for Grand child - everything works great - I'm sure all of these items will do the same.
    ProsOnly place I shop now, prices are great. Product is great, received items quickly. What more could you ask for.

    Great Electrodes!
    Have enjoyed these very much. Bought for thick aluminum work and they do as described. Seem to run cooler because they ball less under higher amperage so I can weld for longer periods without the need to stop and rework the electrode for fear of the ball dropping into my weld. They also seem more forgiving in that if you get too close to your puddle or perhaps touch the filler rod to it, it still works very well so you can finish the job without stopping. Have thoroughly enjoyed these and will definitely buy again. These are my all purpose, do everything electrodes!
    ProsVery forgiving and run much cooler, so they last longer! Great electrodes!
    ConsNone that I can speak of...
