machine setup for uphill 1/16 FCAW

the weld is 36" uphill the size is 1/4" fillet


machines are different and even different wire manufacturers need slightly different settings.

a good starting point is this...

the settings here are based on flat and horizontal so you may need to pick a thickness less than what you are welding.

i have found the wire speed is always about 10% more than what is best for me.
