Argon is an inert gas and in welding is used to produce a shield around the weld. It protects the work from impurities. The arch comes directly from amperage shorting to ground through the rod. The heat generated from this short melts the rod into the work. In short, the welder should work without the Argon and needs only Amperage in the rod and a good ground to create an arch. Double check the ground on the work. In this case, your Ring. Please rate this answer for me and feel free to write again. Thank You.

The tip of my Lincoln 140 welder develops a droplet of steel quite quickly on it. I have the 25 to 30 cfm of argon flowing. I believe I have the right voltage and feed. ???


reset you wire feed speed and the voltage for the thickness of metal being welded
it indicates that the voltage is far too high -probably to compensate for the high wire feed speed
gas is wasted at that flow rate
set up welding screens around the job to stop breezes interfering with the gas at the tip
the gas at the tip should be flowing only strong enough to maintain a gas bubble around the arc
That is the purpose of the gas is only to displace oxygen and so give a good weld

I bought a 20 amp arc welding kit from canadian tire and dont have an instruction manual with it. i have given it the proper electrical current and amperage and still cant get it too work. looking for the...


20 amps seems like a fairly feeble arc welder--most light models run up toward 80 to 100 amps for a stick welder with wire feed models somewhat lower. Even accidently touching the two leads together should have produced some arcing. You may have a defective unit. Hope this helps!

I fix the transmission but it still leaks the transmission oil


Did you replace the rear main seal? This is where it usually leaks transmission fluid. Unles there is a crack on the housing, which can be welded with a mig welder(Gas Metal Arc Welding). Welding aluminum requires the use of a mig welder, and inert gas called argon. The machine itself cost 500 to a few thousand dollars. I have one in my shop just in case I need to weld aluminum.

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.

Puk 111 welding problem


Mine was doing the same, spoke with the technitions and they told me to undo the connector from the hand piece to the machine at the machine, you then need to disassemble this connector and look to see if one of the white wires is dissconnected, if so you need to carefully push the gold plated pin out the back of the connector towards the cable, solder the wire back on and reassemble and it should work.
If not contact the head office and they were very helpfull.
Cheers Robert

Bad tig weld job


Wow you have a lot of variables here. Let's go over some of them.1.AC current 2.100%argon shield gas 3.Check your Tungsten, it must be the recommended 1or 2% and the right size, clean and the tip rounded by meting 4. High freq. turned to continous-not just "START"
5. CLEAN,CLEAN,CLEAN your Alum. with a S.S. brush that has touched NOTHING else in in it's life!
Start here and GOOD luck

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.
