Will the huntsman be ok?

I read in another post that you felt the heat was high. It could be also not adding enough filler metal. For an application like that I would run about 90 amps, scratch start also, and use 1/8" filler wire. Personally I would hold the filler wire a little vertical so more metal will melt into the puddle. I like to move my tungsten in kinda a "z" pattern. Moving from low to high, advancing on the low or bottom metal.
