    Today is day #1 of welding for me. I picked up a miniature, dusty gas welding rig at a barn sale yesterday. I opened the valves and saw 200 psi on the fuel regulator and 1000 psi for oxygen--seems that the tanks don't leak. Good.

    I disassembled and cleaned everything up, and put it back...

    I'm a mechanic mostly, but also a Jack of all trades willing to tackle any project.
    Learned to gas weld in high school many years ago, learned to Arc weld on a Lincoln tombstone...

    DialArc 250 vs Syncrowave 250 for SMAW?
    Paul Cataldo
    Can you guys tell me how a Miller Dialarc 250 would compare to a Syncrowave 250 as far as the SMAW process goes? I mean, will the Sync 250 do everyrhing the Dialarc 250 will do, when stick welding?

    Flux core excessive sparks/ molten spatter
