Question about Welding Tools
My Inverter stick welder is not performing the way it should. The start up arch is fine but as soon as I bring the rod closer to the workpiece it start to sputter and stick, it does not matter if it is on the highest setting it still does it. The weird thing is it does not do it so often at night when it is cooler, feels like there is a loose connection somewhere that prevents the continues power from the welder to come through. I don`t know if it might be the capacitor bank? Any suggestions? please help
It sounds like the rod that you're using is too big. If it is a 110 volt machine, and you're using a 1/8 rod...Then the rod is too big. Try a 3/32 rod.
