    yes the polarity is right we are supposed to be using 75 25 but our setup at works instead of bottles is a huge tank of argon and huge tank of co2 with an external mixer (that is padlocked) they have run copper lines out of the mixer to all our weld stations. I was told buy our welding supplier that he thinks they are using a 50/50 mixture of gas because it is cheaper for them. I currently us 75/25 at home and get less spatter and a better looking weld with the airco. Oh and i know what a weld looks like when the polarity is wrong we have a guy at work that likes to be a smarta$$ and switch it while you are at break.

    sounds like a real funny guy.
    i would suspect the gas mix to be the splatter problem. Co2 is not so good at higher amps and i dont think i have ever herd of a 50/50 mix, but dont know that much about the mix options just have not herd of any one using a 50/50 ??
    glad to here your's is doing good at home, i supose that all that realy matters.

    the point i was getting at about the weld mixture is i think co2 is cheaper than argon and i think that is why they are using a 50/50 mixture. we dont have your typical welding bottles. we have two huge tanks about 40 ft in diameter and 25 ft tall, the gas from them are piped to a gas mixer and then by individual pipes to our weld stations. i was just curious if anyone else has had splatter problems with the xmt 304 series or if it just might be our gas mixture. thanks for the help
