    I've had some success with a spool I brought from lidl. It runs in lovely
    Ran in reverse polarity
    19 volts
    6mm base plates
    Wire speed has to be ran faster than u would normally have on gas er70>6 wire plus dragging the torch is odd feeling at first.
    Some pics to show even runs nice in the vertical position what you guys and girls think

    Is that on a Lidl welder, or something better?

    can you say what welder your using if its a 150 then those welds look cold

    and it would be true as a 150 would not be able to weld 6mm steel

    i have a 195 that richard had and that will do it
