would like to know what heat i should run welding flux core 0.35 and 0.45 wire in overhead and vertical positions on 3/8 to 1/2 inch plate.


you can get some pretty good settings at this link


but make sure to use lower thickness settings for vertical than what is listed...

in other words, if you are looking for settings for 3/8" thick metal in the vertical position, select 1/4" on the weld calculator and you will be pretty close.

a resource for self shielded flux core settings is here...


you will need to copy and paste these links in your browser address box

best of luck to you
