    More ignorant lying by clueless LWS countermonkeys.

    The HH210 is not "discontinued," in fact it's only recently released.
    The nozzle IS available, the Hobart number is #770 487 and the Miller number is #226 190.
    Hobart parts are certainly NOT "discontinued Miller products."

    Rocky, thanks for the great pics, it is always nice to get a visual. I do have questions on the fluxcore nozzle. Are they offered for the HH210 and where is the best place to find one?

    Wa-Hoooooooooo .... I followed that with my mouse Rocky. The bad part is I had to do it twice before I made it all the way. And then I was close to dizzy.

    This is an area that I NEED practice... I loose concentration and get my pattern all messed up.

    Thank You for the great drawing.

    How far should the tip be from the metal?

    I have been trying to read as much as possible and this site has been a great help.
    C is ok for pattern, there are lots of others, depending on position, and joint config. It's also ok to just not use a pattern and just keep a steady speed and straight. Draw lines the width of the bead you want on the steel first with soapstone...helps to keep you from wandering.
    The saying is: "when there's slag...you drag" for fluxcore drag or pull the puddle.
    for MIG (with gas) you push. With the tip between 1/4" to 3/8" stickout. It's important to keep it even as you travel, because the distance affects the volt/amp ratio.
    The is a fluxcore nozzle that will allow the contact tip to protrude out farther all by itself to give you a better look at the puddle.

    It's a start. Lots of room for improvement. Your travel rate is slow then fast with short periods of constant travel rate.


    Weld bead raised above plane steel surface should be a flat arc with consistent even ripples frozen into the face reinforcement of the weld bead. This is a good representation a a proper weld bead.
    ((((((((((((((((((((((((

    This is how ripples in weld bead would look if your moving too fast.
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    If weld bead is high without good fusion on side(toe), your moving (travel) is too slow and/or not enough amps.
    CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC

    Using wire feed welder MIG, GMAW or FCAW, flux core welding increase wire feed speed to increase amps and heat. If wire hits bottom of puddle also increase Volts.
