    Default Paid in welder things!

    Hey,

    Just excited so imma share here. A spanking new MM211, cart, bottle and digital ellite pro auto darkening helmet just arrived for me at a clients - as payment for services rendered. I'm an IT consultant see - and built a nice little customer relationship management application for them using Microsoft Access - it'll help them manage their customer base, sales leads, customer product suites etc. In passing I mentioned I'm learning to weld and aim to 'save up and buy a MM211' at some point - well that point is here and it's waiting for me to scoop up tonight!

    I do have a question - a roll of .030 flux core wire (bottle is empty for now) to set up in the machine with it - any real experiencde tips on set up that are helpful outside of the instructions provided? TIA all.

    Now a Thunderbolt 225 AC/DC and a MM211 - a pretty nice stable for a guy that is just starting his journey! Next will be the goodies to set up a scratch start TIG set up for my Thunderbolt......

    Just make sure u have the drive rolls on the correct side and make sure that ur polarity is set on DCEN, DC Electrode Negative. Solid wire runs on DCEP. The inside of the 211 should have a setup to show u how...

    Pretty nice of your client, as long as you weren't expecting a monetary payment.
    Enjoy the 211.

    Cool - I'm fortunate enough to do IT work a steel supplier - it works out good for everyone! Enjoy your new machine!

    It should tell you everything in the book. There should be a settings chart on the door to get you close to the right volts & wire speed. Keep a little more stick out with flux core as opposed to solid wire. Drive roll tension should be less with flux core than with solid wire. Be consistant with your gun angle. Try & keep the gun lead as straight as possible to avoid birdnesting.
