I swapped a set of almost new 5 lug Chevy steel sawtooth wheels today
for an "as new" Horrible Freight Mig-100 welder today, as new. Ive not
got any flux core wire for it yet, but before I go out and get some, I
was wondering if there were any tips, warnings, hints, tricks etc
about using this machine.
Im a (fair) stick welder, not bad with Tig, but havent used mig much.
I know this is a chicom import and I dont expect much, but I figured
it would fill in when I had to do small quick work, or on thin stock,
which Ive been doing with small stick or gas welding.
Any particular choices of wire is better than others? HF has 2lb
spools of .030 flux core for $13. Any other places with better prices?
This is what I got for the 4 rims, which I snagged, just before they
went into the dumpster of a shop whose owner has more money than sense
and a nut on Corvettes.
