I have just purchaced a Syncrowave 200 and have some problems. I am brand new to tig welding but I am a certified mig welder with 23 years experience. I primarily am welding patches on cars with 18 guage to 22 guage steel. I am using a 1/16" red tungsten thorium electrode in dcen. Using 1/16" ER70S2 welding rod. Amps set at 50, argon gas with 20 lbs at the regulator. My problem is I am burning through the work piece sometimes before I can get the welding rod to melt and am having problems getting the weld puddle to flow. So far I have much better luck not burning through the workpiece with my Miller mig welder. I purchaced this tig for more control over burn through and panel distortion, but am not able to achieve this. I have tried the PPS from 10 to 1.5 with no luck. My vendor told me to try welding in dcep, but wont this burn up the electrode prematurely? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
No announcement yet.
