Proper heat settings for the size plates you are welding on can be found inside the welder housing or in the set up manual

I have a Rossi 100 amp mig Gasless, has no grunt to weld with.

turn up the voltage regulator
the more volts the more amps available
check for proper;y connected ground
make sure that you have the ground wire connected correctly to the machine
ground and live are reversed for gas less operation ( in the user manual)

Have 130xp welds the same with or with out the gas welds are not smooth

check wire feed speed , volts setting and current setting
if you are using solid wire with a gas bottle then the leads will be + to the hand piece and negative to the work
if you are using gas less wire ( no gas required) then the hand piece has to switched to the - terminal and the earth to the + terminal basically smooth welds is a combination of wire feed ,volts and amps suitable for the material thickness being welded

Suggested setting for rossi mt 200 welder

read you hand book on the settings but it all depends on material thickness being welded
higher volts = higher amps will require faster feed speeds = thicker materials
sheet metal thickness (.040"-1mm) will require very low volts -up to 20 v with a slower feed speed
remember the unit will have a very short duty cycle and that means that you cannot start a weld and keep it going for many minutes especially at high amps
it works like this ,if it is a 20% duty cycle ( on the plate of the machine then for every 20 seconds of power ( high amps) the machine has to rest for 80 seconds
if you are welding panel metal the ( very low amps) then you can weld for longer periods but the rest period has to be 4 times the weld period

Wire feed have erratic speed when welding.

adjust your speed either up or down to match the amps required to weld

I am trying to locate a chart that would have the recommended operator control settings for different types & thickness of metals using my Snap-On YA 212A Ind. Mig wire welder.

See if your local welding supplier has a welding guide available. Some even include them as part of their catalog.

There is no real hard and fast absolte rule when welding with Mig. If you weld outside, and in the country where line voltage can vary, what worked well a day ago may not work well today. Those tables are only a rough guide at best, and while useful to you starting out, after a time when you are used to your welder, you will not need it.

What the weld looks like from the back side can tell you more useful information than you might get from a simple arbitrary table.

The best guide- experience. Start welding up scrap to get used to the welder, and get used to the sound of frying bacon or eggs. Then you can rely on your own judgement instead of feeling a need to refer to a book each time.

What the simple rule of thumb is, pick a heat range you think you need to use, then grab some scrap and lay out a bead adjusting the wire speed until you hear it sound like bacon on the frying pan. Then you adjust your speed to the thickness of the metal to achieve full *********** and ideally the back side looking like the front side. If not enough ***********- go up a heat range, and reset wire speed and try again.

When I was doing industrial welding for a grain handling equipment company I moved all around the shop and ended up on many different machines. None of them operated with the identical settings of the others even though a couple of them were of the same manufacture..

My Hobart 140 will not get hot enough to make a weld. It will feed out the wire, make a spark, and the flux core wire will melt on top of the thin rouaght iron square tube fence but it will not melt into...

Sounds like you have the wrong polarity in your machine. If you are using flux core wire, make sure to connect your ground clamp to the positive side and your gun to the negative side. Dial the right voltage and wire speed according to wire size and metal thickness.Let me know if this help.

Same problem here...using proper gas, more heat (setting 4) should penetrate better, no? have lots of flow from blueshield 8 bottle. What gives?

Your machine is rated for less than 1/8" thick metal welding. The only way you can have a depper penetration is by using innershield wire instead of metal core one. Innershield wire does not require gas and it will melt at lower heat.

Lincoln mig pac-100 low heat on highest setting.won't weld 20 ga.

if you are using flux core that might be why, flux core burns hotter, try using 75/25 or more argon than co2, as your gas, the gas will keep it a little cooler, keep your amps down and match the wire speed to the amps, which would be slower wire speed

How do i weld thin metal with out burnning holes

First make sure your work area is out of the wind
Get some of the same thin metal to practice with.
Use the thinnest wire you can get. Start on the lowest
Volt setting and wire speed start welding and increase
Your wire speed till it sounds frying bacon and use
Stitch welds about ½ long wait a few seconds then lay down
The next weld start at where you left off that way the metal
Has time to cool some dial it in and practice.
