    hello. im new here! ive been looking around and i cant find an answer to my question so here goes....

    ive recently bought a wolf weld 140 gas/gasless mig welder and the flux cored wire supplied (wolfs own brand) does a wonderful job! really cant fault it but ive tried a few other brands without as good results. i have looked and looked but i can only find wolf fluxed wire in 0.25kg rolls and only from ukhs.co.uk and it is REALLY expensive. does anyone know of a flux wire that works well with this machine and is availible over the 0.25kg weight? im learning to be very stingy with the wire and only weld what is absolutly nessercery! please help!

    Users here have had gook luck with Lincoln Electric and SIF wire. I prefer Lincoln.

    Also make sure the polarity is right, some wires will work with the polarity reversed, some will not.

    thanks! really dont want to save money up to buy wire only to find it doesn't work very well. what is it about 'lincoln' that makes you prefer it? quality of weld? good flow? what machine are you using and what type of metal?

    I don't use gasless wire anymore; just too messy and expensive.

    I tried cheap wire and it just would not feed right and it rusted right away. The Lincoln is always the same, does not rust and is not much more expensive that the cheap stuff. I have a 15lb roll of Hobart wire that is good too.

    I have a Miller CP-250TS with an Airco wire feeder; both probably older than many users of this forum ;)
