SOURCE: have a dayton 85 amp

You didn't indicate what thickness of metal you were welding or what type of weld wire you were using (other than size)
Less expensive welders will have voltage present, with trigger off. Shield gas= positive nozzle, flux core= neg nozzle.
These machines are probably abojut 15% duty cycle. That means you can only weld a few min. As far as tripping breaker on max setting, that is probably not unusual. If you read the label on the welder, I would imagine the max line current is over 20amps. This should be on at least a 20A seperate circuit. If I remember correctly, the FLA amps on this machine is over 20a
Check input voltage and be sure you're not experiencing a voltage drop. A small voltage drop will create a dramatic amperage increase on your supply circuit.

SOURCE: 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..

How to reverse polarity on transmig 195 for gasless wire


just take the lead for the wire and attach it to the ground terminal and attach the ground wire to the + terminal
there will be diagrams in your user manual and if you don't have a manual then go google and type in--- user manual for mig welder 195 model( model not included in your question)--- and there will be a psd version to down load

Why does wire weld to tip when trigger is pulled when welding aluminium


The tip of the welder may need cleaned out, your feed speed might need slowed down, check the polarity is it straight or reverse?

How do you ignite a Lincoln Electric Welder???


You don't need an striker with a MIG welder just hook the ground cable to the base metal point the nozzle where you want to weld and pull the trigger and it will weld. Household current will run a MIG welder Take a look at the plug on the welder if it will pug into a 110v outlet you are all set, but most likely you will need a 220v outlet and maybe as much as an electric dryer type outlet. 

It takes a lot of practice to be a decent welder you also need to know what voltage and wire speed settings to use for a given thickness and type of material. 

You don't mention shielding gas, if you are using a flux core wire you don't need it, but if you are using regular wire you do. 

If I may make a suggestion, If you really want to learn how to weld, find a community college near you and take an introductory welding class. You will get a wealth of information and practice on different welding processes. The instructor will work with you and get you welding much better and faster than you will on your own. Most importantly you will get a lot of safety information.

This is a good introductory book:

for welding cars or similar thickness steel use it on number1 setting speed 6-7 and practise max and min should be used when you want a bit more power A gose onto number 2 and then 3 these are amp settings and are for thickness of steel to be weled your welder can weld up to 8mm of plate steel on setting 3 max i use 0.9mm gasless flux cored wire great for working out doors the wind tends to blow gas away on standard wire yours is easly converted to gasless as so was mine

I need to find a manual for a Craftsman welding stabilizer


I think most of the older Craftsman welders were made by Century which is now owned by Lincoln Electric Company. If this is a wire feed welder you adjust the wire feed speed so that the arc sounds like eggs frying, the voltage setting (if any) will depend on the thickness of the material you're trying to weld. If it's a stick welder there will just be a current range control that you set depending on the thickness and type of material you're welding.

Rank me if this helped,
Carl
