Yes everything on there is tig. Once you have one its all you want to use. I still weld a little but my eyes aren't as good as they were. so I have my buddy Roger at work do must of the welding. and I do most of his machine work. A few years ago I helped him restore a john deere 212 and it looks like brand new. Didn't miss a detail.
