The he. is barely opened and argon at about 20
Where the settings are at as of now its balling just a tiny bit. Enough to disrupt the arc. And this anodize is the polished finish definitely coated.
Filler is 5356
For reference, I use gas lenses. And for a #7 I push 17 to 20 cfh, with 20 being max before the surge flow wrecks my starts. A #8 cup I go 20 to 22cfh.
Is the polished finish clear and chromish bright or opaque and nickle like in brightness? Ask to look at the test reports for clarification.

Didn't get to mess with it today too much goin on.
I can tell shovelon is very informed and its good to know Im not the only one that hit a speed bump. I run a 1/8 gas lense with a #7 cup. Ill remember to keep my gas below 22. As for the anodized its the chrome lookin one. Not too easy to penetrate with what I have set up and I cannot take the time to carefully clean the weld void or take the chance of scratching it. The weld is coming out a little grainy on the edges on some welds but not all. Like yall said I think iys gonna take a few hours non stop so I'm goin in tomorrow off the clock to do it.
