      longshot. Anyone have a wp20 torch power cable? I blew mine out, and it'd be nice to get back on the watercooled torch, especially for aluminum.

      If your going to weld something, do something useful You guys should practice your SS pipe welding with backpurging.

      I'm sorry. I got a little bored from building this.





      Sometimes you just want to mix it up a little

      Any advice for me? I know it's not the best, I'm self taught using a harbor freight 90amp flux core welder.

      (And don't mind the bottom, I let a friend give it a try)

      How thick is that tubing your welding to? Or is it not tube?

      Inner shield flux core is for salvage work. Pick up a spool of hardwire and a bottle of 75/25

      A little more heat. Flux core always looks like crap.
      Sux for sheetmetal. If its a ground weld then it doesnt matter, multi pass stuff too.
      Gas is faster, less clean up. imho.

      Thanks for the input. Unfortunately my ****ty welder only has a high and low setting for heat. These were on low. I will try high on this. I do also want to look into how to use gas with this welder.
