AMPERAGE = 100 AMPS ON MACHINE CONTROLLED BY FOOT PEDAL (HIGH FREQUENCY AC SETTINGS SOMETIMES REQUIRE MORE AMPS THAN LOWER FREQUENCY SETTINGS)
TUNGSTEN = 2% LANTHANATED, 3/32"
FILLER WIRE = 1/16” 4043
POLARITY = AC
GAS FLOW = 15 CFH argon
CUP SIZE = 5
ADDITIONAL SETTINGS = AC BALANCE 30% CLEANING, AC FREQ 400HZ
PRE FLOW = 1 SEC
POST FLOW = 7 SEC
TIPS: KEEP A FAIRLY TIGHT ARC AND WATCH TORCH ANGLE
Aim for an arc length that is equal or less than the diameter of your tungsten electrode.Torch angle can be forgiving provided your arc length is tight.
