current Joe Thornton Salute to Service Jersey

Canonsburg Brent Burns Salute to Service Jersey , PA March 6, 2012 --(Weld)-- This article will help you answer your basic questions about the MIG welding process.
1. Q:What is best gas mix for the home hobbyist (Weekend Warrior) or small fabricator?
1. A:There are many different types of gas mixtures that you can use in your hobbyist applications. There are advantages and disadvantages to all mixtures, so here is a list that should hopefully narrow it down for you:
• 100% CO? - The advantages to using 100% CO? are it is the lowest price of any other gases and it generally has the highest penetration. The disadvantages are; it has a higher level of spatter and it is limited to short circuit and globular transfer.
• 75% Argon 25% CO? - This is the most common mixture used by Weekend Warriors and small fabrication shops. The advantages to using 75% Argon 25% CO?are it has lower spatter levels and a flatter bead than 100% CO?. The disadvantages include higher price and it is still limited to short circuit and globular transfer.
• 85% Argon 15% CO? - This gas mixture is used mostly by fabricators and not so much the Weekend Warrior, but it can be used by the Weekend Warrior. The advantages here include a good combination of lower spatter levels and excellent penetration for heavy plate applications and steel with lots of mill scale. This mixture can also be used in short circuit, globular Logan Couture Salute to Service Jersey , pulse, and spray transfer. The major disadvantage is its high price.
• 90% Argon 10% CO? - This gas mixture (like the previous) is used mostly by fabricators. It has similar advantages, but again is uncommon with Weekend Warriors due to its high price.
2. Q:What size wire diameter should I use on thin material and why is it important?
2. A:When welding on materials 18” or less, a wire diameter of .025” is ideal. The fact is; most beginners make a weld that is way too big. This generally leads to burn-through problems that can ruin your piece. When you are welding at a lower current, the smaller diameter wire will remain stable producing less arc force and reducing your chance of burning through. So if you use .025” wire with a low current Joe Thornton Salute to Service Jersey , you will be on your way to success when working with thin material.
3. Q:Do I need a machine that can run different wire diameters?
3.A:Technically speaking, No; But it is definitely recommended. Using thinner wire diameter prevents burn-through on thinner materials. But what if you switch it up and decide you want to weld some thicker metal? You are going to need a machine that is capable of running thicker gauge wire, such as .o45”, to ensure you are getting proper fusion.
4. Q: What should I take into consideration when purchasing a new Welder?
4.A: There are many things you will need to take into consideration when purchasing a new welder. Here are a few that you think about:
• (Amperage range) First of all, you need to ask yourself what you plan on welding. Then you need to take into account how much amperage that will require. Does the machine you are considering meet these requirements?
• (Power Supply) What kind of power supply is required to run the machine you are considering? Do you have this already wired Evander Kane Salute to Service Jersey , or will you need a new source of power as well?
• (Warranty) You should definitely take the manufacturer’s warrenty into consideration when buying a new machine, especially if you are new to welding. Things can go wrong with the machine and you want to feel confident that the original manufacturer stands by their product.
