Beautiful. I wish welding didn't intimidate me. I'm lousy enough at soldering.
What are some other equivelents to the Hobart Handler 135? Or is it like any 135 amp gas mig? Beautiful write, helps alot!!
The millermatic 251 is nice.
C25 is a common shielding gas, and works nicely.
Better mean business before I break out the flux core.
Voltage is directly proportional to arc length. Wire speed is directly proportional to Amperage. It's hard to envision how these things interact unless you've taken some lessons. To picture it in your head......higher voltage would mean that the wire is burning closer to your welding tip faster, to hold that longer "arc length". Without enough wire, that arc is going to be too long. It will burn out, touch, burn out, touch, make a mess. With voltage too low, the wire will literally be pushing back outward against your hands, since it can't burn fast enough. With the right balance, everything goes much smoother. For thicker metal, higher voltage and higher wire speed are used. With thinner metal, conversely, lower voltage and less wire are used. The main reason is control, and heat input. A larger ugly weld is not always better than a good smaller weld.
I hope this helps more than confusing.
sorry JI, [\threadjack]
Any pictures of the finished product?
Where'd it go?
Wow, that was odd. Why are all the stickies broke?
Edit: Alright, I've spent 20 minutes with the search engine and can't find anything. WTH happened?
ji threw a hissy fit and edited out evey post he made with anything tech related basically.
no point in having a sticky with nothing in it
How ironic. In that post about brake tech, he felt entitled to steal the work of someone that he considered to be a jerk to post on our board uncredited, but now feels his words should get special consideration of ownership. Eh... who knows how much of his tech posts were really his writing. *shrug*
WTF???? What a bastard, thats right Loco, you're a bastard, thanks for ruining it for the rest of us.
is that the post that's still quoted by someone slightly further down the line? if so just copy it back into his post...
no, its not
Pointless thread. Locked.
