Question about Welding Tools
I am using flux core wire. The wire comes out perfect until I contact the work piece. I cold stand there and feed the whole spool of wire through it no problem. as soon as I contact the work piece the wire immediatle sticks inside the whip. I tried a bigger brass tip with the whole in it but still the same problem. I am also using the anti splatter paste. The wire seems to stick inside the coil in the whip.
Make sure your wire speed is not to slow when you strike an arc. When it is, it will usually burn off right at the contact tip

Is your grab rollers tight? Is it a new liner in the lead? If you are using .035 wire you can use a .045 tip. I generally use one size larger then what is required. You have a lot less problems that way. When you use flux core wire on most wirefeeds you have to reverse your positive and negative leads inside of the welder I assume you did that? If there is any moisture inside of the liner it can stick because it is grounding out when you start to weld.
