im doing a bend test with gmaw. its 3g downhill open root on 1/2" plate and i need help with the settings.


you could probable use 19 volts and 245 ipm with .035" bare wire all the way out if you let the plate cool in between passes to where you can touch it and it is warm.

that is if the bevel is roughly 35-37 degrees and the land is 1/16 or less. with a 1/8 gap
