  • Fleck in my welds

    You all you goods guys out there.
    Starters: Dynasty 200 DX, 2006 year. Doing 3/16" Al. Using 3/16" x 1 1/2" angle mill finish. 1 /1/4" pipe butt weld. Running 185 amps, 70 bal 120 frq. all good. I'm guessing 6000 series. Problem was went to Anodized pipe kicked to 200 amps , 70, 130. full of pepper flacks. I tried gas at 20 to 35 cfh or what ever. Welds look fine just dirty. 3/32" 1.5 Lanthaitd tried orange and red.

    Any Help Out There??

    Those are chunks of anodized finish on the top of your beads. You need to completely clean the area of the weld to eliminated those.
    Nothing welded, Nothing gained
