  • Newbie needs advice...

    I'm a first time welder on a brand new Millermatic 140. I carefully dialed in all the adjustments and gas dials properly but I can't seem to get my wire feed in synch with how rapidly my weld is using up the wire, so each time I stop welding there is a 4-6" piece of wire projecting out of the handpiece that I feel needs to be cut off to get a manageable length of wire to start welding again. Any advice on what I need to do to correct this from happening would be super. I'm very happy with the welds I am getting and all, I just don't feel like something is working correctly and I don't have a clue as to how to start to correct it.

    Sounds like you are pulling your gun away as you stop welding

      Yeah that happens sometimes, or material could be very dirty.
