I am going to buy a new liner, so will make sure its a steel one.
I've always avoided Car repairs especially other peoples but I don't mind having a go on my own Car, as outside firms charge a fortune even for small jobs
My Cousin an expert MIG Welder doesen't like using 0.6 for all the reasons everyone has mentioned, so I guess it really is a case of 'practise,practise,practise. at least until I'm half as good as he is!
I use 0.6mm A18 wire with no problems! (In pure CO2)
Argon gas mixes do make a difference to weld quality!
Hi Thanks for your reply
Once I get my welder set up perfectly, then I will try again and see what happens.
I always use 0.6 on 15kg reels , never had a problem with cobbling up ,
I’ve been welding cars for 30 odd years and massive amounts of welding carried out ,
Everyone to there own, but that’s the size wire I prefer to use ,
Migs are great machines and much faster than tig by far , but that’s a different ball game altogether,
I too always use 0.6mm on 15kg reels. I too never get birds nests or feed problems.
All thou the last A18 0.6mm roll of wire that came from Rapid welding - was only 12kg.

Welcome to the forum Paul, must tell you though, the last post on this is 5 years old. I would think he’s used that reel by now, & possibly a few more.
i usually use 1.0mm wire because that’s what’s in my welder most of the time. Or I use 0.8mm wire.
I never use 0.6mm for anything, and I do a *lot* of cars.
