    Why do you use .045, is it thin material? I use 1/16 most of the time. I find little use with 045 if the material is 1/2 or thicker.

    Its called dial shield because of the gas acting as the second shielding agent... Hence the name dual shield. Most flux core is gas shielded actually.

    tweak ur settings a little bit. ie. up the voltage a bit or knock the wire down a little to keep the spatter down. 9 times out of ten you will find a roll of dual shield on the wire feeder rather than gas-less flux.
