      Uhmmmm, yes. But I'm having a hard time figgering out how to make it work. Mebbe I'll make a thread asking how I should set things up for welding aluminum and steel.

        Actually YOU should start a thread telling us how to set up for aluminum and steel and stainless!!!cool:
        But that's prolly asking a little much

          .035 aluminum wire...

          Installed the .035 wire today and I could weld the 1/4 plate with ease with no preheat. Miller recommended the setting for 1/4" material at 9 for voltage and 100 for wire speed. I found that 8 for voltage and 100 for wire speed was perfect for me.

          If I had bought one of these machines and penetration did not increase GREATLY with pre-heat on 1/4" I would either be getting it checked out or learn what in the heck I did NOT understand!! If either didn't work I would certainly send it down the road! Not having enuff power to do the job is the most frustrating thing about so many newer machines out there. I'd be calling MILLER before the sun set
          The HH210 is rated for the same thicknesses as the PP+ but everybody on the Hobart Board praises its capability.
          What voltage are you running on anyhow????

          Are you saying that your Passport + will NOT weld 1/4" aluminum set at max even with pre-heat and taking your sweet time welding it???
          I don't see much need for a machine you would have to LOOK for jobs it might handle once in a while.

            No, it wouldn't be asking too much. In fact, I thought after I read the manual, and re-read it several times, I would do an in depth review on the unit. It may take a bit as the manual is quite lengthy and very technical in nature so I will ask for your patience.

              Hmm,.... good question. That might work, but I just dont know where I'd find .047 wire. I probably have a hundred lbs or so of .045, but the .047 might be a bit elusive for me.

              Well slap my @$$ and call me Sally,..... I musta had that all that all mussed up,.... This stuff I have IS .047!,..... And here i thought it was .045 like steel wire. I guess after burning thousands of lbs of it over the years,.. I never noticed! My Bad! thanks for the correction KB!

              My point IS, that the WFS cannot take advantage of the full output of the machine. Dont think .047 will work very well in it. NOW,... if you can direct me on hooking up one of my 30A's to it.... then we'll be cookin with Crisco!
