WTF...I was going to make a temp fix for my exhaust yesterday, cause the Audi is loud with the cracked flex pipe. Anyway, my old gas/flux welder just stopped working so I got an el cheapo flux core only welder. I've used one roll of wire. I went through more than a pound/ half roll of flux core wire yesterday, trying to get that bitch to feed. It makes it 90% through the sleeve then gets stuck or feeds, lets me weld for a few inches then the wire gets chewed and it's a no go from there. I'm using 035 flux core wire in a 4" spool, the rollers are on the 035 setting and I've adjusted the tension numerous times. Do you think I just got a crappy roll of wire...or something else? This is going to fuck me, I was really planning on gittin 'er done today with the temp fix until I bought some new pipes. I really don't like hearing it open header. Opinions? Suggestions? I'm going to go get a new roll of wire and see if that "fixes" the problem.
