I have a 33lb roll of ESAB Coreshield 11 (E71T-11) and I didn't know that I
had self-shielding wire untill I got it home, it wasn't the wire that I
wanted but anyway!.
What I'd like to know is: has anyone used a flux core wire such as this and
how good is it to weld with? ie, will it make a sound weld without a lot of
cleaning or prep.
I have always used a CO2 shielded wire at work but I haven't used self
shielding wire much at all.
Also I have a Hobart Hefty CC/CV suitcase wire feeder with a voltage clip
and a cc/cv goggle switch inside and I was wondering if I should use it on
cc or cv with my Lincoln Ranger 8 welder.
I do know that straight polarity is used to weld with this wire but I don't
know wether to use cc or cv for best results.
