I would add to that highest setting without burn out or excess splatter. When I did my S-10 frame I set my 175 Hobart to 2. That is 75%. It is also rated to weld 1/4 inch single pass. I have found it will do it on the 3 setting. 4 is just too hot.

You will just have to practice on a piece the same thickness to see how the machine handles it. They are all a bit different. Wire size also affects how the act. I was using .035.
