flux core and gas

by mark

i still have a few rolls of flux core wire, (.035) can i use these with shielding gas?


Mark, some flux core you buy for small welders is designed to be used without gas, but there are some that are actually designed to be used with gas shielding also.

if what you have is designed to be used by itself with no gas shielding, you will probably be wasting your gas to use it...

but try it and see. it wont hurt anything.
