    Oh yeah ? Ok thanks a lot.

    If I'm welding sch40 pipeing, that is 1 1/4 diameter, roughly what should the width of the bead be ?

    I find aluminum "easier". I hate stainless,although I do quite a bit of it. Stainless warps terrible, needs ample gas coverage while welding and post flow. and is VERY hard for the beginner to get the heat just right.

    Thank you, yeah its a little crooked. Just did not feel right putting something that was going to be crooked on a brand new machine, *shrugs*.

    Thanks though.

    By the way, are those clear tubes holding filler rod ? Where did you get them if so ?

    Its a tad off, you can tell in person. The bolts barely want to go in when you have the foot pedal off, not a perfect fit.

    Mine's straight but had to hold it straight while I tightened the screws. The clear tubes are the small 1lb packaging for filler rod.

    If it's just slightly off and it bugs you - drill the mounting holes out on the bracket just a bit to give you some additional adjusting room.
