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.
