I've been watching some videos and they all indicated that my wire feed speed was set too low
My weld was making the exact sound that there's was when they showed a weld with too low of a feed speed
I had my wire speed set at 8 (out of 10) so I'm already right up there
I'm going to do some practicing today with a different setting, but, should I increase the wire speed even more? - it seems like it's already set pretty high for such thin metal?
Or, should I reduce the power setting?
I can see that my weld had no penetration, so I'm a little hesitant to reduce the power setting, but could this have been due to the lack of wire rather than the power being set too low?
As mentioned earlier, the settings were the same for both the vertical and the horizontal welds
I had the power set at 4 (out of 8) and my MIG is a Cebora 180
From watching the videos I know my wire speed was definitely too low, but since I'm already at speed setting 8, I'm unsure whether to reduce my power setting to 2 and see what effect that has
What do you think?
