Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Migmate 120 Dual purpose welder, it is difficult to get a smooth weld. I have adjusted the wire feed over and over. It seems as if there is not enough pwer?. All the leads and power supply are ok. It welds in quick spits and spats. I mean it does weld but is very hard to a weld that looks half decent. I've played with the wire spool tension and it works fine. I do't know what else to look for. Maybe you can help Regards Peter

It is a combination of feed speed and welding amps and correct gas flow
if you are using core flux wire and not gas make sure that you reverse polarity for the flux wire

SOURCE: Dont know what part to weld!!

I hope I can help you since so much time has passed. This is a rather common problem with the SDMX1 and that is because the headphone jack was installed with too little solder. Here is what you do.
1. Dismantle the player by removing 3 screws ( 2 at one end and 1 at the other).
2.Carefully pry the end caps away.they should pop off.
3.lift the upper half of the case from the joystick end gently.
4.lift the entire circuitboard out. watch where the battery terminals are.
5.look at the headphone jack where it is installed on the smaller circuitboard.
6.on both left and right sides of the jack down on the circuitboard you will see 2 solder connections.
7.these are for the left and right channels.
8.if you look carefully (you might need a magnifying glass), you will probably see a very small break in the connection.
9.using a pointed soldering iron (no soldering gun here!), simply resolder BOTH connections using a very small amount to solder. This will most likely solve your problem.
10.put everything back together and it's as good as new. VERY EASY.

I have the same welder. Worked well for 15 years until the drive bearing stopped spinning. I cleaned and oiled the bearing and it has been working like a coon on the farm since. Nice 120 volt welder....

SOURCE: I have a hobart handler 120/90amp wire feed welder

I have welded countless hours with Linde & Lincoln & even a few Hobarts & the only time that I ever had the same problem was when the ground connection either to the object I was welding, or the welding cable ground wasn't good & clean & tight. Same on stick welders also. I did develop the habit of grinding not only where I was preparing to weld, but where I was placing my ground clamp & that always provided a better "frying bacon" sound as I went along the business of pushing a bead. In a welder, the only other thing than that is involved is the step-up transformer and your wire. Hope this helps.

Have 130xp welds the same with or with out the gas welds are not smooth


check wire feed speed , volts setting and current setting
if you are using solid wire with a gas bottle then the leads will be + to the hand piece and negative to the work
if you are using gas less wire ( no gas required) then the hand piece has to switched to the - terminal and the earth to the + terminal basically smooth welds is a combination of wire feed ,volts and amps suitable for the material thickness being welded

Just purchased and tried to use my flux welder. It jams before flux even comes out the handle.


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 ***

I have a firepower fp130 mig welder . I have been using 0.30 wire,can I use bigger wire in it,if so how do I adjust the welder for it


The only thing you need to do is change the tip to the 0.30, and feed the wire. If no 0.30 tip is included with the welder it just isn't designed for that wire. You will also need to flip your friction feed wheel at the box to match the diameter.

Handler 140 wire jerky when welding


make sure rollers are clean and slots not wore out check alignment
do not over tighten wire feed so it smashes the wire
flux wire is hard to get a good setting
make sure if you can set it for gas welding it is not on this setting

Wire feeds too quickly


Some welders control wire speed with the amps control, some control amps with the wire speed control. You might try turning things up until it runs smoothly without pushing back. If you're new at welding, it does take some practice until it feels right.
