  • Wow... it's been awhile since bought rods cause I'm running wire feeder in field for most all my work. But I've always used Lincoln rods just liked them better. Can't remember price now but that seems like about 1/2 price from what I was paying.... Lincoln was never cheap but they are good. If I remember...

    Yeper I agree. That's all I use anymore 90/10 for all my steel welding in shop. <br />
    And 75/25 with dual shield on road work. <br />
    Works great and saves on inventory.

    Alum is 100% Argon<br />
    Steel is 90/10 for pulse. <br />
    If you look in your chart on 350-P all pulse steel settings are based on 90/10 and also metal core pulse is 90/10 <br />
    Under mig, settings are based on 75/25 for steel wire and 90/10...

    Pulse is I great feature and not just for sheet metal repair. <br />
    I do a lot of under ground reamer rebuild and a lot of times need to build up areas 1-1:2 " wide and 1" thick or build up 1" <br />
    A lot of these are 4130 steel so it needs pre heat and stays...

    replied to Oxygen in MIG gas mix???
    My guess is his gas supplier feed him a line and now sells him expensive bottle of mix with a smile. <br />
    Deer in the headlight look when you mentioned spray kinda gives you a hint. <br />
    I use spray transfer 99% and don't use Oxy with any of my wire. I never liked the idea...

    Pulse no big deal. If you can mig you can pulse mig. There is a chart same as with mig. Takes a little getting used to but really not much different than mig. Just gives you a lot more flexibility with lighter metal and with fill-in, also if need to keep temp down but still keep penetration weld integrity....

    Have used both, ran the mm252 up against duty cycle many times and for the work I did the oem gun & cable wasn't quite big enough, a lot of sputtering when gun got hot. But with that said I was making my living with it. <br />
    Up graded to mm350-P, 4 or 5 years ago, never regretted...

    If it is going blank and shows mm 350p sounds like it is restarting or starting from off. <br />
    Problem shouldn't be in gun as that is just a switch i.e. Contacter <br />
    If a contact becomes loose it will heat during use like welding then cool when not using as in stop welding....

    If it were mine id pull covers, check & tighten nuts on input wires. Then I'd unplug all connectors blow out & plug back in, one at a time. Inspect each connector for signs of heat etc. inspect boards for signs & put back together. <br />
    One other thought. I'd pull apart &...

    Ok. With out Cruiser to verify. I would set to 61hz or just under 60.8 - 60.9hz. <br />
    Adjustment should be self explanatory. Inspect carb linkage and idle up Sol. Should be easy to figure out adjustment.

    I looked up some notes I kept from old post cruiser had on this. Can probably find them if search long enough. But I'll be close. Set weld rpm. With no load. Low rpm diesel i.e. 1800 area. Set to 60.5 - 61hz. <br />
    Set small gassers to 62.5 hz area <br />
    And I'm guessing yours,...
