maybe one of these weekends i'll bring the welder home and you can help instruct me?

I think it turns up to E.

the metal on the hose reel wasnt too much thicker i dont think, than the metal on the cart. I was 'trying' to make lil circles, maybe i was going to fast or slow, im not sure.

My theory is why would a woman go for the pint size version when she can have a gallon! Haha

If it goes up to "E" max, I bet you need to kick the speed up to arout 5-6ish. If it only goes up to "d" I bet you need to be in the 6ish range. Just totally ballparking here but 2 is definitely WAY WAY WAY too slow on your wire speed. If the big plate was equally as thick and you're just running a 110V welder you probably could've kicked it up to the next letter too.

For instance, my lincoln goes up to E... When I'm welding in my C setting I'm around 5.5, when I'm in D I'm running about 6.5. It varies a bit depending how much wire is on the spool but that's roughly where I'm running at. Mine is 220V though also so my C and D settings are probably much hotter then yours.

I think I've only welded on my "E" setting once ever and it was like 3/8" thick plate I was working with. I did most of the race truck on either "D" or a combo of A and B for the sheet metal stuff and depending what I was doing.

You could always kick it up to the highest letter, put it at like 7ish and just lay down a stack of tack welds on top of each other. Will look pro and do fine for anything not life concerning. It's the cheater way to weld but it works! You didn't hear that from me though! LOL





Oh and in comes Merrick with the closer!!!

You might not believe it but I actually do "work" during the day. I've been working on a new part for the bat wing today. This is where I'm at so far. Hoping to finish it up tomorrow and get batman's approval to get a sample made.

the chart on the inside of the panel said to run at like 3 D or something.

I ignore the chart... On my 220V, on 1/8" thick plate I'm running D and 6.5-7ish, sometimes a little over 7 even if the spool is really low.

BTW, you had a good solid spot where your ground was clamped to right? Just tossing out other possible issues...

I think the metal started to warp and put a gap between the 2 and the 110 cant jump the gap.

Plus it should of been hotter and more wire speed

But it's not dark yet!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!
