Question about Welding Tools

2 Answers

Have a Millermatic 200 wire welder! s/n:JJ048290!

Problem! When you go to touch the metal you are about to weld, the wire wouldn't even spark! Welder don't have the right hum to it either when turned on and when you contact the metal with the wire coming out the gun you don't have that contact sound or click to the machine! Checked the fuse's in the fuse box and they are ok! You can hear the machine when you first turn the switch on or off on the panel, but it just don't have the right sound to it like it did before!

    Couple of items to check out: What size (amps)set is it. Single phase or three phase: All connections are tight: the Earth is in good condition: plates to be welded are clean: contact tip-rollers and liner is all the same sizes.Check on the front panel for a switch indicating Spot "......." or Stitch "--------" set these to off.

    ; Wire feed rollers turn when the trigger is pulled: The torch assembly is good condition. let's know how this goes

+1 a-tripod. That's the first thing that came to mind when I read it! Can't forget the ground clamp. Or, nod your hood down when it's layin' on the bench!

The problem is your project is not grounded, attach the grounding cable from your welder to your project your welding.

Why does the wire weld when I touch the metal?


BE CAREFUL. That sucker is hot and you have current going through it! If you get a voltmeter you will detect the juice.

Hi:
Well don't know were to start, basic technique goes according with the type of metal to weld and type of wire to use.

My tig welder wont arc unless I touch the metal with it


my guess would be the type of welding machine you have.usually there is extra switch which says start control also continious cycle , sometimes smaller machines dont have these switches to allow a wider variety of tweeking the welder ,also its ok if you have to touch the base metal cause thats what starts the contact with the work peice ,keep a arc after touching about 1/4 inch away from work peice ,also a good steady hand rest will make a good welder in any situation this should allow the arc to remaim stable with a comntinious weld arc puddle. happy welding
