root pass with nr 232 fluxcore wire

by carlos

on 1/4 root gap on 1 inch plate what angle should i hold my gun to keep from trapping slag and what is the best setting for.068wire (wire speed and volts)

I would shoot for a dead nuts 90 degree gun angle.
even when you shoot for 90 degrees you push sometimes and thats ok.

Wire Feed Speed 110 – 135
Arc Volts 18.5 – 20.5

you can figure inches per minute by pressing the trigger and holding for 6 seconds. measure the wire that came out, round off and add a zero.

for example, if 11.5 inches comes out , round off to 12 , add a zero and thats 120 in/min
