    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

          Where I've worked before, and know, TIG and MIG is NOT an option! All using stick.

            put some fire in that wire! been a while since i ran that stuff but its got to be hot. same with 7024. learn how to run 232 wire and you will flat out smoke other welders out. with 232 i can smoke any wire feeder. plus its hard. used for structural. learn your lo/hy rods thats what most people use in construction

              Ive had it happen

              I welded with a cheap ac welder with the same rod, one box worked fine. Good welds, bought another box and had the problem you are having? went back to the first box and they worked fine. so far been only 1 box i found will work. good luck

                could be the 2nd box had been on the shelf too long or gotten exposed to some sereous moisture some how. they do have a shelf life as i understand it and need to be kept dry, so that could be the problem.

                  in the picture, it looked like the travel speed was too fast, arc length was too long, running too cold, and are you left handed or took the picture upside down?

                  next to tig, stick is the funnest way to weld. it's more work but once you get good at it, wou'll want to do everything with it.
