Default Re: Welding newbie need advice

Can somebone explain to me why a fluxcore welder is so frowned apon (i mean i know it smokes like crayze and its bad for you and all), all my welds have held up so far and i havent noticed anything wrong with it, i am aware that migs with gas are better but i dont know or understand why. The gas is used to push the air away from the weld to prevent oxidization within the weld itself.....correct? doesnt the fluxcore wire do the same or at least allow the weld to be resistant to oxidization?
