  • dda52: A couple yellow machine welds for you

    Don,

    While you're patiently waiting for you new machine, I decided I 'd torment you with a couple weld bead pics produced with my inferior yellow unit.

    For these welds, I had the coarse voltage dial set to the high range, and the fine range voltage dial set to tap #2. The wire speed dial was set a little short of 8. I feel a good guess on the out put for these setting would be 24 - 25 load volts with an amperage that falls in the 200 -210 amp range.
    MigMaster 250- Smooth arc with a good touch of softness to it. Good weld puddle wetout. Light spatter producer.
    Ironman 230 - Soft arc with a touch of agressiveness to it. Very good weld puddle wet out. Light spatter producer.

    Ooooo....purty. Yup, you are tormenting me.


    It won't be long for me now, Dan. The unit was supposed to be shipped around 1pm your time today. If all goes well, they think I may have it by the end of the week.

      Don,
      be sure to runs some beads with C-8. I would like to the profile between the two gases.Try the two inductance taps to see the difference in the arc cone. I will be down around the other machine this Friday.

      Dan,
      did you ever pick up some C-10? Nice looking weld bead too!!

        Will do, Scott. Hey...why didn't you suggest shipping with flat rate boxes to Joel?? It would have gotten here sooner.

          So, so, so, so which unit are you getting? I remember talk of a 250 and a 250 plus... or whatever. Inquiring minds want to know.

          Incidentally, those going yellow may sent their used blue and red equipment to VA for proper disposal, postage prepaid.

            Scott No C-10 yet. I need to keep the 98/2 around for a while longer.

            When I originally test drove my Migmaster 250, I used C-10 for spray arc, and the machine performed very well with it. Which I was glad to see, especially consider the fact that the MM 251 that I sold was a very nice C-10 spray arc unit.

              That's great, Don!!!! Once you get it, you should make a quick trip up to Oregon with it, let Dan run a couple passes with it, then you also will have some beautiful beads to show everybody, "Was made with this here welder right here, Ol yellar." ..... and then just give it a couple pats for effect.

                What shape are they in (Flat rate boxes) when they get there??? Probably would look like UPS made the delivery!

                  Don,
                  You should have said Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes. Not only are they cheaper shipping, but they get there before the Postal apes have much time to cause too much havoc.

                    I have an Esab Migmaster 250 Plus on the way. I hadn't planned on going yellow, it has just worked out that way I spose. Remember how many Synch 250's I looked at? Then bamm....a yellow 252 TIG dropped into my shop. No way am I getting rid of all my bloo machines. Bloo has been way too good to me for that to happen.


                    Umm, Joe, its coming from Oregon. No way is it going back....sorry Dan.

                    Scott, the boxes were always pristine. I guess like what Roy said.

                      Just have Roy pack it for you. Good luck unpacking by the end of the weekend.

                        Hmmm...good point. I am having flashbacks of unpacking the jib crane stuff. Well, say what you will, everything Roy has sent me has arrived intact......might be because it had 2" of tape around it...but it got here in tact.

                          Quit whining Scotty!!! That one wasn't a Priority Mail Flat Rate box. I didn't want the contents to be spread across half the country...literally...getting to ya'!!! Gee...try to help a guy out and he complains about working through a little plywood, three lbs. of 1 1/2" staples, a couple handfuls of wire nails and a half roll of packing tape.

                            Don, you had more to worry about than a little unpacking...them Postal gals probably still have a list with your name right there on top for retribution!!!
