    I found a pack of zirconated 1/8", it really is holding a ball. My big problem is getting into corners. The pool is really hard to dirrect. I hate to say it but I had to get out the spool gun. This is a work project and had to get er done. I'll post some pic's later. TJ

      I use a syncrowave 250 ten hours straight every day..... I use 1/8th ceriated (orange stripe) ground to a point with a cordless drill. I weld all positions except overhead (because it is production work...not because I can't) and it starts making a ball and stays rather small for several days if I don't dip it much. I am welding between 1/8th and 3/16ths material from 0-250ish amps and find that it works very well for inside corners as apposed to the old ball method (ie..less wander)
