Welding Tools - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


The correct current, or amperage, setting primarily depends on the diameter and type of electrode selected. For example, a 1/8-inch 6010 rod runs well from 75 to 125 amps, while a 5/32-inch 7018 rod welds at currents up to 220 amps. The side of the electrode box usually indicates operating ranges. Select an amperage based on the material thickness, welding position (about 15 percent less heat for overhead work compared to a flat weld) and observation of the finished weld. Most new welding machines have a permanent label that recommends amperage settings for a variety of electrodes and material thicknesses.

Hi:
Well don't know were to start, basic technique goes according with the type of metal to weld and type of wire to use.
I think if will be better if you read the basics of welding with MIG machines with an owner's manual. Check the link and go to section B-7.

seems to be Lincoln Electric from my searching. Plus mentioned in this old Fixya post.

Cleanliness is important when it comes to Mig welding. Any rust, dirt, dust, oil is liable to be deposited in the whip liner. If it's just a dirty liner you can try cleaning it with a solvent that doesn't leave an oil deposit (electric motor cleaner, brake cleaner, that sort of thing) compressed air and flexing of the whip.

Make sure your whip hasn't been crimped, if it has then no amount of cleaning will restore it to operation.. a new liner is the only reasonable answer.

It's possible that a bad tip can cause feed issues. Miller type tips are the worst, in my experience, sometimes you just get a tip that will weld to the wire when the current passes between them. I've worked in shops where I might go through three tips in five minutes and then hit one that would last all afternoon. If the wire sticks and you can hold the gun up and rotate your wrist and you feel a 'pop' and the wire jumps out of the tip then just change the tip out. Excessive roller pressure with a tip that's sticking to the wire can really make trouble for you. Nozzle dip is your friend sometimes with tip sticking issues.

Copper clad wire is not particularly friendly to liners, the copper is liable to flake off in the liner. I use bare wire, I bag the wire in a plastic bag on the feeder and I wrap a scratcher pad on the wire just before it goes into the feeder and I find that I have few feed issues. Wire that has even a trace of rust should be discarded as it will both fill your liner with rust and give poor quality welds.
