Welders are often looking for a good reference detailing recommended amperage levels based on tungsten welding electrode size and type. Although Midwest Tungsten Service only provides 1/16", 3/32", and 1/8" electrodes, some projects call for a slightly bigger diameter, such as 5/32" or 3/16". Additionally, you might have your own preference that fits your unique situation. We’ve put together a reference based on recommendations from the American Welding Society
