I hooked up my 211 yesterday for the first time and began running beads for practice. Most came out pretty good. I did notice a little fine spatter on a few of them; nothing horrible.

I quickly figured out I needed welding pliers because my little ****s were not working out. While shopping online for some I noticed Welding Spatter Spray. Not just spray but also dip. Then I read about using Pam cooking spray.

Please educate me on if I need to use it, when I need to use it, which type I should use, and how much to use. Is it only applied to the gun tip?
