Welder heat and speed settings?

I just picked up a lincoln weld-pak 100 for 90 bucks and a trade. I'm new to welding and trying to figure out what settings to use for the heat and the speed. Is there any rhyme or reason to what settings to use for different types of metal or is it just a personall preference. If anyone's got a weld-pak 100 what settings do you usually use?

It should have come with a guide that tells you what settings to start off with for a particular metal thickness. If I don't have that, I usually start off with as high a heat setting as I can weld with without burning thru all the time. This way, I'm getting good penetration. I adjust the wire speed to keep a good steady flow of wire without pushbacks (too fast) or surging (too slow). I adjust as I go until I get a good bead. After awhile, you get to know about what settings you're gonna need to start with based on the metal thickness.

You should be able to download all of the info from Lincoln www.lincolnelectric.com.

Have fun with the new toy, and the best thing you can do is get a big hammer and a vice and try and break your new welds, it will help you see what works.
