  • What exactly is the machine doing? Is the diffuser plugged on the gun? Wire rusty? Gas valve partially stuck from non use (haven't heard of that but it is possible)?...

    Your beads are about as good as you are going to get on 120 volts. Just not a high output available. MIG welding does take more volts and amps to run a hot bead than some .035" flux core wire....

    I would highly suggest getting the machine running on 230 volts. It really would not have much more output than your Clarke on 120 volts input. I know that my transformer Lincoln 180 will run on 208 volts with a reduced output voltage and a reduced duty cycle. The transformer based 210 isn't much...

    Cotton jeans with a full length leather apron. Maybe a partially split apron that wraps around your knees. I don't like the split apron as they are a little more restrictive, but do stay in place, especially for field work. I have to wear a leather apron as I am a galvanized steel welder. The dripping...

  • Good to see you on here, Farmer Samm. I had read many of your posts on WW, but haven't been an active member on there. Too much attitude and bickering on there. I don't have WiFi much any more so don't post very often on here.......

    Stick to the welding topics. I did use a Miller drive roll on my Hobart 210mvp 4 years ago and I doubt the machines have changed. I wanted to try .045" Lincoln flux core wire. It ran nice but the gun was just too light for the heat. Softened up the plastic handle. I think the neck (tube)...

    U grove is for aluminum, possibly bronze wire. Knurled V is for flux core, V for steel or stainless steel. I have only ever seen 1 set of American made drive rolls actually wear out, too. On a Lincoln 215 (full size machine, discontinued last year) that had fed about 30 pounds of wire a week for many...

    Is that stick welding slag? Far too coarse for self shielded flux core.
