    Evening

    Turning them round a bit...:

    Mig
    Steel Square Tubing 2.5mm Thick
    Setting 2 - 18v
    Not sure how important voltage is - amps tends to be the key metric for MIG, and you're probably around 100A for 2.5mm (source)
    Wire 0.8mm For Steel
    Sure
    Wire Speed 240 inches per minute
    Do it by feel, once you have the amps dialled in
    Argon Co2 Mix - 80% Argon 20% Co2
    Seems a little co2 heavy - normally you'd be looking at 95% or 90% (source)
