I seem to have so much splater with the flux core wire that i am using but the weld is not to bad.could it just be the brand of wire?

Cheers Chris



make sure you have the polarity set right for flux core. most self shielding flux core wires need dcen ....electrode negative.

also, try varying the stickout to find a sweet spot.

Make sure your amps are high enough, too many volts makes for a messy, wide weld
