    Hi, I'm a newbe on welding but I'm making a turbo header for my bike. It's going to be made on SS 304. I will like to received advice, sugestions and maybe alittle help about tric etc. I'm using a .035 ss fluxcore at 240v on my 211mvp. I need to know what can I use in order to clean the metal.

    If you are using flux core I don't think you are going to purge with argon.

    Default ss custom turbo header

    I would recommend using solid wire with gas mix, and acetone or similar well make for easy clean up.

    Ok, thanks for the advice, but I only have this .035 ss fluxcore roll. I can't buy a 3mix bottle on this moment. But thanks! Does any one knows about about what kind of setting I should use? The volts/wire feed combination for that wire?

    You will be doing yourself a HUGE favor by getting a bunch of spare tubing and do a lot of practicing on it... Only when you are confident in your fitting and welding skills should you attempt to start the real project...

    No shame in developing your skills to equal the task...

    Think you will be much happier in the long run..

    How can anybody advise settings if we do not know the thickness of the tube and flanges as well as the maker and formulation of fluxcore??

    I allready start the proyect but I'm seen a lot of splaters on the area, and I'm worried of not getting good penetration.
