    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.
    thanks for the help

    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.

    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.
