I’ve used both and prefer the argon mix,I think it’s 5% , it seems to weld cooler than co2 , I rent from boc on there hobby discount ( tell them your a member on here) it’s about a pound a week rent and around £50 for a refill

Same as ^^

Argoshield light for the MIG, Pureshield for the TIG, both size Y bottles on the Volkszone deal with BOC.

They’re physically quite big bottles, but the deal is only available on that size and they work out a lot cheaper than the smaller options.

YMMV, and there are options with Hobbyweld and Adam’s Gas that have potentially lower on-costs but a much higher setup. Depends how much you’re going to need and where you are relative to your nearest stockists.

If you're welding outside it's not worth the extra for argon/argoshield just run pure CO2. Inside I run Argoshield5.
