  • HELP! How do I set up for flux core mig? Polarity, amps, speed, anything please...

    Just landed on a jobsite in Iowa. I am AWS certified stick. First trip off site to the boneyard and it is "all" flux core mig and I am clueless. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

          No gas flux core. Welder is Miller (desiel) of unknown model w/ "suitcase" wire feed. Mild steel 1/4" to 1/2". Really appreciate any input. Thanks.

            All wire manufactures will give you welding permitters for the particular wire you are running. Find out the type of wire and size wire and do an Internet search.
