Hey there everyone! My first post and this is my first welding machine, YAYY!!!
It's quite interesting since i'm just kind of winging it and learning from trial and error.... my question is, it seems like after I start my bead that I'm getting too long of a electrode lead from the gun (i'm starting with about .25" hanging out and within a few seconds it's well over an inch) and when I stop my bead i've got like almost 2" hanging out and I have to clip it off after each bead. is this normal? I'm running the Autoset on 1/8" mild steel stock. Thanks!!!
