plate test for shipyard 3g,4g
i have to take a plate test 3/8 plate bevel both sides no backing with.045 dual shielding wire 71m i believe can you give some advice on wirespeed and voltage im thinking 22-24 voltage and 250 or so on wirespeed am i even close?
I think you are in the ball park...maybe need a bit more wire speed though.
here is a link that might help you..
In case you have not seen this, Its Millers weld calculator for flux core... I use it all the time to get a starting point. Its not meant for out of position welding but it helps for matching voltage to wire speed settings. You just have to find a thickness that corresponds to what voltage you think you need...I have found the wire speeds to always be a tad high because they are intended for production welds in flat and horizontal.
