Ive almost always used 75/25, argon to CO2 mixture without any problems, the main thing about welding is cleanliness, what your welding always welds better if it is clean. hope this helps.

    75/25 mix is most common to use.
    But if you would like to Achieve spray transfer you need to have 90/10 mix and have your volts above

    pure co2 is not very good for mild steels, but allows for deep penetration, one big disadvantage is it encourages oxide formation, which affect the mechanical properties of the weld also it makes alot of spatter

Trying find out what i would have to have to start TIG welding with a Miller Bobcat 250 1992 year model


you will need a AC high frequency unit to weld aluminum. For stainless and mild steel just need a dry run tig torch, hose kit and 100% argon.

I have a lincoln sp-100 welder and despite having a good ground the weld quality is just not there. Any help is appreciated


Hi,
Let's troubleshoot this one:
1) Make sure you have the right polarity for the wire you are using: Innershield wire (no gas) ground clamp must be on the + side. Solid Wire (gas use) ground clamp to negative side.
2) If gas is used: Mild steel welding requires Argon/CO2 mix 75/25 or 90/10. Using pure CO2 you will create a lot of sparks and a lot of fumes. Stainless Steel welding requires a Trimix gas of Argon/Helium and CO2. Aluminum Welding requires pure argon. Any use of gas requires a steady gas flow of no more than 25 SCFH. If you use more than that or less you will find porosity on the welding.
3) Your work piece must be cleaned before welding (no grease, dirt or paint).
4) Check your machine welding chart for wire speed and voltage.
If you still experience problems with welding quality, check you input power voltage, make sure it doesn't fluctuate.
Goooooood Luck.

I have a lincoln power mig 255 and every time i weld little holes appear in the welds. what could this be?


Hi:

This could be a problem of gthe gas you are using. Make sure to use mix 75/25 argon/CO2 for mild steel welding, argon 100% for aluminum and trimix helium/argon/CO2 for stainless steel.
Also check your heat (voltage) 16-22 is enough for weld of most steels less than 1/2 inch.

Does welder need argon gas when using steal wirer


Hi:

If you are using solid mild steel core wire, yes you need a mix of gas Argon/CO2 75/25.

Only cored shielded wire do not required gas (also called innershield or flux cored).

Adjust your flow rate for the mild steel wire at 20 or 25 scfh, depending if you are welding inside or outside a shop.

I HAVE A HANDLER 140 I PURCHASED NEW RECENTLY, THE WELDER FEEDS WELL BUT THE WELD WIRE ONCE APPLIED IS NOTHING BUT **** AND FALLS OFF THE METAL WHEN STRUCK WITH A HAMMER. i AM USING SOLID WIRE AND THE...


Newer welders as hobart and miller are set up from factory to use innershield wire therefore polarity is set up as inverse. Check inside your machine and check that ground cable is on negative side. Your gas must be mix argon/CO2 or pure CO2 (not recommended).
Other potential problem is wire not being a mild steel one. Check you have gas flow out of your nozzle.
That's all I can think of.

Not forming a continuous bead on the inside of a 3'' carbon steel. set amps at 85/ 90 argon at 10, what am i doing wrong. please help me


I need more info, you are Way too vague.

What type of weld are you trying to do? A Fill weld?

Are you trying to fill a V in-between two pieces of hard steel, (Carbon), that is 3 inches thick?

1. If you are, the electrode should be held at a 90 degree angle to the metal. Straight up, and down.

Moving the electrode too fast will cause a intermittent bead. Slow down. TIG welding takes time. It isn't like ARC welding.
If the electrode burns off to one side, you don't have the electrode in the correct position.

2.Too little heat, (Amperage) will make a 'Cold' weld, and you won't have the penetration that you need. Too much gas (Argon) will do this also. Too little gas, and you'll burn through.

How to quote stainless steel welding?


First, depending on where you live some shops(welders) will "quote you a price". check the yellow pages. Use a time and material guide. Material should be included with the price of the stainless...many times you could find a contract with the locaaaaaal gas co.(speciaiality type)e.g. helium O2 etc. good place to start.

Starts welding good then doesent


Hi, This problem has happen to me, My solution was a grounding problem. Take your ground cable, and put it on the table leg.

If this doesn’t work for you, please write back. Thanks,

Mig Question


MIG stands for Metal Inert Gas welding, many times called Wire-feed.. Also referred as GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding). The "Metal" refers to the wire which is what is used to start the arc. It is shielded by inert gas and the feeding wire also acts as the filler rod. A semi-automatic process, it is fairly easy to learn and use.
