What am i doing wrong?
Not a lot as far as I can see! They look good to my very untrained eye. Turn the plate over and lets see the penetration through the plate
how thicks that plate , looks a bit cold / too much wire . although looking at the end craters its prob just lack of power and having to wait for things to happen , tell us more about the plate and the power ,, have you a selection of plate to play with .
The plate 3/16 inch
0.030 inch wire
280 ipm, 19 volt
C25 gas, 18 cfh
whats the back of the plate looking like ,,, try a wee bit less wire and have a go at a joint , your off to a great start.
I forget to say that i have 220volt power source (not 120volt)
Can it effects settings?
gives you a bit more punch
If your welding inside you could get away with 14 or 12 your runs look quite good keep practicing padding beads and then start filling up a tee plate
Mr Perry - I think his gas is measured in CFH (Cubic Feet per Hour), so his 18 cfh, converts to about 8.5 litres per minute.
All the Best,
IMO, They are pretty good for 0.03 inch wire, the first one is a bit cold though. If your machine allows it, try to add and extra 1 or 2 Volts.
Tnx, i will do for sure
