SOURCE: power mig astro power 110 burns wire off at tip

I have the same welder. Worked well for 15 years until the drive bearing stopped spinning. I cleaned and oiled the bearing and it has been working like a coon on the farm since. Nice 120 volt welder....

SOURCE: Weld arc not stable. Wire feeds, good ground,

Try moving the tip closer to your work and try turning your wire speed down
Most people want to crank up the wire speed when it spits and sputters
Turn it down
See if this helps

Arc blow could be the cause! Put your ground on the work piece and weld away from it. If you weld toward a ground clamp the magnetic forces will blow your arc around sometime. When taking a cert this simple mistake can make or break ya on your cap or reinforcement beads.

I have a Lincoln wirematic 250 when I weld it will run fine but once in a while it will pulse the ark in the weld. And is doing it more often. Stoping me from running a continuous bead.

indicates the following problems
rusty wire in use-- the rust builds up in the inner wire and will not allow free movement
the inner cable is worn and is grabbing the wire in a groove -- the inner cable will wear a groove and that catches the wire in certain situations --
the feed rollers are worn or the wire in use is not correct for the groove in use
most feed rollers have 2 grooves and each one is for set dia wire there are different rollers if gasless wire is in use to prevent the wire from deforming as it passes through the rollers

Need to weld alum ,have co2,have er5356,need wire speed ,heat hi-low/ 1-2 setting info

You will never weld aluminum with CO2, you need straight pure argon. The best aluminum wire for starters is ER4043 and 030 diameter will work better with this machine. If wou don't have a spool gun it will be pretty dificult, but it can be done. First need to change the liner of your gun, instead of a steel one, it must have a teflon liner, and your tensor at drive rolls must be set pretty low (less pressure the better). A knurled type drive rolls will avoid the slipping of the wire.

Regarding the initial setting, you must crank up the wire speed to a higher speed then work it down as need it. Heat set it at low.

That's it!!

I have a weldmark 140. When you turn the voltage knob it controls the wire speed. The wire speed knob does nothing

Flip up the cover on the side to expose the welding wire rool.
push the feed button on your welding gun, and watch the feed rollers.
If they are turning, then you need to increase the force on your rollers untill the wire starts feeding.

If the rollers do not turn, then you most likely have a bad switch, or connection in your welding gun or your speed control

Good Luck

Too much tension would smash your wire and it would not run correctly. Are you sure you are using the correct size rollers for the wire you are using. Rollers come in various sizes and applications. A knurled roller is used for flux cored wire. Make sure you sizes match up. They are stamped on side of rollers. Good luck!

When trying to weld,the feed wire gets red hot

There are loose connections and / or a short in the gun.
sounds like the gun is grounded, and the gun is welding the wire to itself.

Bottom of canoe is cracked under the front seat almost all the way across can it be repaired

Is it made from plastic or fibeglass or alum?  For plastic or fiberglass I would try a very good epoxy. For alum. I would try to find some one to weld it. There are some very good epoxy's out now. 3m makes a panel adhevsive for auto use that will fix just about any plastic/fiberglass you may have.
