Have you tried adjusting the tension on the flux wire? before you start feeding the wire into it make sure there isnt any kinks in the wire. seems like it doesnt take much for it to bind up once you get start welding with it im sure you will run into this problem quite allot. usually its from welding the wire to the tip. i have to be honest it can ve a pain in the ***

Can I use 0.030 Flux Core Wire in my Lincoln Electric SP170-T?

Use the .030 flux core wire with the amperage settings for .023 solid. If you cannot find .023 settings then just set low power first and play with it to see what works.

Is there a connection for gas to mig weld on a Clarke 6440 flux welder

No. Not with the spool up on the gun. It is one of the few flux core specific welders.

This is not to say you could not try. the hard part is the plumbing between the gun and the main box. If you can get that figured out it would otherwise be the same components as other MIG welders.

I cannot get the gas/mig to work properly on my wg2060. The flux part works fine but the gas/mig pops like crasy and will barely create an arc. I have the proper gas, polairity is set correct, gas is...

Do you have nozzle on properly, The gas flowing out the end? Your gas flow should be about 8 to 12 psi. Check your wire speed. Sounds like You have too much wire speed. Make sure the ground cable is tight. Did you reverse the polarity when you went from flux wire to hard wire? Is your wire er70s-6? This is the wire you want for mild steel. Without seeing your setup and knowing what you are trying to weld leaves too many varables.If it is a newer machine, try taking back to where you purchased it or to a dealer who has that make & model

Welder work OK with flux wire, cannot get penatration in MIG mode

Are you using combination argon/co2 gas? You need a flow regulator and should have it set for about 10cfm. Note that this is different than a pressure regulator. The problem you note is a result of inadequate or improper gas.
