Of course there is a screwup in this "Basics"


Basic principles of MIG welding are this: You have VOLTAGE, the pressure that pushes electrons through a circuit. Then CURRENT, (same as amperage) the amount of electrons being pushed. And RESISTANCE this restricts electrons from flowing. The gas (Argon, CO2, or a mixture of both 75-25% is most common) is blowing away the impurities in the air around and on the surface of the weld. If there is a breeze you may need to up the pressure from the recommended 25-30 cubic feet per hour (CFH) or 3-4 PSI.

for the sake of simplicity, read a tutorial but get out there and practice. There's a feel for it that can only be attained by practicing, but there's also a need for knowledge so read up before doing so. So get out there with some scrap and dial your instincts in!
