Had some spare time today to try out the Bohler E317L flux core wire I have. First couple of welds were nice but it went downhill fast. Not sure why and I tried everything I could think of from altering gas flows to different settings on the welder (EWM Phoenix 330) and nothing helped. Some welds would come out better than others but the vast majority of them had serious worm holes/tracks in them. I am thinking it may be dampness in the wire but just wondering if anyone has any other thoughts. Some pics.
