    Default Spoolgun frustrations

    I think I finally figured out my problems with my spoolguns. My heat was too high. All along I was thinking I gad gas coverage issues. The MM 210 gives a setting of 6/70 for 1/4", I turned it down and things got much better. I found a setting of 5/60 worked real well. Heres a few before/after pics. Adam

    Cool

    Nice work. Spoolguns are tricky at first. By the time you get them set right the jobs done unless its a big one...Bob

    Looks like my before and after shots. Before I learned to tig aluminum and after.
    I've never seen miged aluminum and have to say I'm impressed.

    Thanks for the replies, I prefer to tig but the spoolgun is so much faster. I am going to start working on my vertical with it now that I have my welds looking decent. Adam

    I recently bought a 3035 for my mig machine,was very impressed with the ease of welding & weld quality. The recommendations inside the welder cover are very hot. I used to work at a job where I would use a Spoolmate II. It was very finicky, always burning back & ruining tips. I still use Tig for most of my Aluminum welding, but a friend just got me a side job of some forklift ramps; the spoolgun will get a workout.

    i have a 210 with a spool gun and noticed that very same effect.. i did a alum. project a while back and had to crank it down .. even though usually the alum. needs more heat the steel.

    also dont forget you may had a little higher input of voltage then what the machine is calibrated for.. i know i get exactly 234 out of my outlet.. and im linked for 230 on my machine..
