Shield gas regulator setting

by Brian
(Burleson, Texas)

Have a Handler 140. Have used for a year w/o gas. Purchased bottle and solid wire. What do I set the regulator at. Can't seem to find an answer online.




try 15 cfh

the nozzle is pretty small on those units and more gas only causes crappy starts and wastes gas.

you might even be able to get by with 13 cfh

you will know when its too low because you will get porosity
