wire sticks in tip
I am in the beginning stages of learning my mig welder, a Miller Autoset 180. I am getting to the point I can occasionally make a decent weld, and join two pieces of metal together.
My problem, a lot of times when I try to start a weld, it just "pops" briefly when it strikes an arc, and the wire sticks in the feed tip. If I turn the clamp on the feed roller up, the more likely is it I get a "bird nest" starting.
The problem is more pronounced with .024 wire, than .030 wire.
