I went back to the store to get more tips and to try some 4043 filler. The guy at the store thought it was weird the 5356 wasn't working. so we called miller and they don't recommend using anything but 4043 on the MM211. got my rolls of 4043 and seems to work great.
    yes 4043 is in the spool gun .. im finding better results with the settings and more angle with the gun ... still some soot

    Those are nice radiators. I could see one in my '64 T Bolt clone project. I have a nice 4 row cross flow but alum would look nicer...Bob

    I have run .030" 5356 SuperGlaze with my 211 / Spoolmate 100 with no problem... Sometimes you have to turn those knobs on the front of that little blue box!

    Don,
    Not to hijack your thread... but I'm looking for a source for just aluminum
    cores. Want to build my own tanks, brackets etc.
    Any online source you can suggest?
    Thanks

    I push only which seems to minimize the soot and also re brush each joint just prior to welding this also has reduced my sooting to almost nothing.

    I really like the trailer design. Nice work. Who built the axles for you? I have been using Dexter for all of my trailers but I like the individual units like you have incorporated. That type of axle would allow a lot more flexibility in design than a one piece axle.

    The first trailer I did with the Axle stubs .. bought on e/bay .. nice cause you can make the trailer any width you like un like the standard full axle where the perches are set to a standard width .
