wire speed settings printed inside the door are way off?
for mild steel, it seems way to low,
example: fillet weld , 1/4 inch steel plate .035" solid wire , C25 ,
25Cfh gas flow , clean metal , new M25 gun....it calls for heat 4/48
wire speed. gives way to cold weld, I am running more like 6/ 65
the opposite on stainless. 1/8 " 304 plate using
trimix gas 308L wire .030
calls for 5/70 setting ...thats crazy.... way too hot.
I run more like 2 /35
also at the end of the weld bead releaseing the trigger and the wire
stays glued to the metal piece , it should burn back......
is there something wrong with this thing or sound pretty normal ?
PS: shop voltage is right on the money 235V, #8 cord aprx 25'long
