  • ?Getting more penetration?

    hi all, here's a newbie question...if i turn the wire feed speed lower on my 'lil hobart 135 & keep the amps at the max. setting, & weld really slowly, will that put more heat & penetrate better, or should i not do that? the welds look good, and there is no undercutting, but im not sure how deep they go. thanks for any help.

    You need to read your manual or look thru some back threads here for some detailed explanations. Your wire feed IS the amps, it is what gives penetration, more wire, more penetration. (basically) The V setting is the arc length.
