  • Thanks everyone, yes Dale you are correct that Flux Core is actually called FCAW, I have read of people using shielding gas with flux core wire too, why, not sure, and this isn’t what I was talking of anyway. Thanks for your input on FCAW (FLUX CORE ARC WELDING), however still wondering what stick...

  • Any plans for Torch cart with wheels available?

    Hello all,
    Just wondering if anyone has plans for a Ox/Acetylene torch cart with wheels to share? I recently aquired a Hobart Handler 190 MIG machine, and I’m in need of a portable weld cart for my 125Cu bottle of Oxygen and matching smaller “I think 80 Cu bottle of Acetylene.”

  • ​ Hello all,
    Yeaterday I decided to purchase a 125 CuFt tank of 75/25 gas. My local distributer is Praxair. The tank was 220.00+66.89 fill. I figured I should get approx 5 hours weld time from this tank, at 25CuFt per hour. This should be more than enough for my occasional garage shop welding...

  • Thanks everyone for your interest in responding to my post

    I kind of figured it was “Kind of a Pipe Dream” to be able to achieve Spray Metal Transfer Mode, however I’m sure the machine will work perfectly fine for all my home shop applications.

    It makes sense that...

    Hobart Handler 190 Spray Transfer?

    Can the Hobart Hadler 190 achieve Spray Transfer?

    If this machine can achieve this welding process, what dia solid core wire, shielding gas or gas mix, voltage tap and wire feed settings are necessary. I’ve been taught that spray transfer is disirable on >1/4” mild steel plate because...
