    Am I missing something,, but wouldn't a bigger wire carry more current giving more heat and allowing for slower speed or doesn't the V go high enough? I am confused already this morning.

    Yes Cary,.... but the wire speed is quite limited. A snail crawls faster than the wfs at max. It wont keep up with the voltage, hence the arc lenth gets too great.
    Warning to young ladies:
    If you wear loose clothes, beware of the machinery. If you wear tight clothes, beware of the machinist.

    Sooo....are we saying that if you had a spoolgun that would run .047 the problem would be solved?

    Uhmmmm, yes. But I'm having a hard time figgering out how to make it work. Mebbe I'll make a thread asking how I should set things up for welding aluminum and steel.

    Actually YOU should start a thread telling us how to set up for aluminum and steel and stainless!!!cool:
    But that's prolly asking a little much

    Default .035 aluminum wire...

    Installed the .035 wire today and I could weld the 1/4 plate with ease with no preheat. Miller recommended the setting for 1/4" material at 9 for voltage and 100 for wire speed. I found that 8 for voltage and 100 for wire speed was perfect for me.

    If I had bought one of these machines and penetration did not increase GREATLY with pre-heat on 1/4" I would either be getting it checked out or learn what in the heck I did NOT understand!! If either didn't work I would certainly send it down the road! Not having enuff power to do the job is the most frustrating thing about so many newer machines out there. I'd be calling MILLER before the sun set
    The HH210 is rated for the same thicknesses as the PP+ but everybody on the Hobart Board praises its capability.
    What voltage are you running on anyhow????

    Are you saying that your Passport + will NOT weld 1/4" aluminum set at max even with pre-heat and taking your sweet time welding it???
    I don't see much need for a machine you would have to LOOK for jobs it might handle once in a while.

    No, it wouldn't be asking too much. In fact, I thought after I read the manual, and re-read it several times, I would do an in depth review on the unit. It may take a bit as the manual is quite lengthy and very technical in nature so I will ask for your patience.
