  • Flux Core Beads

    Here are some pics of two beads I layed with a 125 amp machine using .035 flux core wire. The stock is a piece of 1/4"X2" flat stock and a piece of 1/2" square stock. It is a hook that I use to hang my turbo torch and hose. These welds were cleaned up with a wire wheel. Notice the minimal amount of spatter. This first one is a single pass. Trust me when I tell ya, it ain't coming apart.

    Second Pass

    This is the opposite side of the same joint. I layed a second pass on this side, just for display purposes. I just did this up tonight, because I wanted to show some examples.

          Arbo,

          Thanks for the examples of welds done with flux cored wire. I know some of the limitations of it compared to using solid wire/gas combo, but love the convience of flux core. I will be doing some more practice this weekend, and will try to put some samples online. I use a wire brush on the welds also, and they look great.
          Thanks

            flux core

            I've got a Miller Pipepro 304 on my rig but keep my HH on the floor in the cab for quick and easy little jobs. Also my brother-inlaw who had never welded before wanted something for the farm and so I got him a little flux core machine and within an hour he was fixing a brushhog that had been broke for a year.
