Going to set procedure Monday and I,m not to happy with it. I'm using orange tung. and helium as a gas. I know it's going to look dirty , but the weld material flow doesn't look clean, help ?


wtt reply.....

if you are using DCEN for welding aluminum, you will need to increase the flow rate on the flowmeter to about 2 times what it would take with pure argon.

a bigger cup works better too. like about 15/16" sells a big cup but it will need re working with different difusser screens. the ones i bought would not work out of the box and i had to remove them, stamp my own ss screens and i snipped off part of the retainer ring because it screwed up the gas flow

a tight arc
