    Question To flux or not to flux that's the question

    It don't seem like using a flux cored stainless wire is all that great, especially for a large water fountain. you would have a lot of cleanup to do. And in my opinion flux cored wire is not as good to use on the thin stuff as solid wire. You know you can rent a tri-mix bottle by the month, that's if you did not want to by one for keeps.. I wish you the best on completing your project(s)....Bob

    FCP-316L is all position EXCEPT vertical down.

    What kind of wire do you have?

    The Federal Bankruptcy Judge ordered both sides to a Mediation Hearing on May 27th.

    The drama continues................

    I know of only two food grade stainless, 304 and 316. There may be more but thies are the most used..

    Dave Derag, Alot of counters are mostly made out of 304 stainless, I use 316 wire which is acceptable.

    Nfinch96, You might have some problems on that thin stainless, If your going to try to mig it I would like to suggest .023 wire.

    Remember that your welds need to be smooth so food does'nt get caught in the weld ripples which can hold bacteria.

    I personally like to tig weld all restauarant stainless and buff it to a #4 finish to match existing.

    Unfortunately what happens about 20% of the time is the restarant tries to go cheap and I've had guys braze the stainless, arc weld it and mig weld it and I get the call to fix it because the health department says its not good enouph.
