Ernie, thanks, you know everything, I appreciate your input. Would
anything change if this welder could do, say, 48 volts at 200A? I am
sorry if this question is wrong (if no one MIG welds at 48 volts)
Thanks Ernie. 3/8" single pass at 36v is plenty for me. I suppose that
I could do multiple passes in a very unlikely case if I need to ever
weld more than that.
I got myself a Digimig wirefeed a little while ago to try with my new
welding power supply (the old CyberTIG that I had that I modified to
do CC and CV), I am reading its manual right now. Hence my question
about mig welding. Have you ever seen Digimig wirefeeds? They are
supposed to have a lot of bells and whistles.
What would be the most sensible MIG wire to try wirefeed welding
first? Preferably fluxcore, as I do not have gas yet.
The most common self-shielded flux-core is E71T-8.
Lots of companies make wires that fit that spec, but the best I have
personally used in ESAB Coreshield 8.
BTW "MIG" denotes a gas shielded solid wire like ER70S-6.
