Flux core wire is really designed for outside welding, but produces a lot of splatter and slag... looks messy too. Gas welding produces nicer/neater looking welds, but is designed for indoor usage. I'm learning all this stuff too and have just bought my first MIG welder, so I'm doing a lot of research about this stuff.

A gas mixed with Argon & CO2 will be suitable for Mild and/or stainless steel... Aluminium requires pure Argon.
