its not ideal.. it pushes the castor rod mount further out also. better off lengthening them between the ball joint and castor rod mounts

I found an old exhaust of mine out the back, I cut it in half and then stick welded it back together. (Just practicing more)

I'll post pics soon :)

i use a tig for everything... its such a pain in the arse to do the LCA's with the tig as it just doesnt burn properly due to the trace contaiminats from paint and grease.. doesnt seem to matter how much i grind them back or clean beforehand.

ive got a cigweld 175hf DC tig.. its fantastic and will do those thick steering knuckles no worries on full amps. but im thinking bout selling it or trading it in for one of those 3 in 1 cigweld's that i posted in the other thread. or do i keep the DC tig and buy a standalone mig? i never use arc..

..It's not okay for a cheapie. This is the 2nd one that's blown on me. It keeps blowing the transformer inside.

Going to return it tomorrow and get a 3rd one.

 

Now that it's blown twice, and I expect the same thing to happen to this other one.

Can someone tell me what I'm, or the machine is doing wrong?

 

It seems to struggle pushing out the wire at the start, I know the wire is el cheapo flux core brand that came with it, so I'll be changing the wire, the wire burns out quick and all I do is splatter.

Now I know it's not me that's causing it because I've used a "Pro" MIG before, and made nice welds with it.

 

Anyways, what might be the problem? Not enough electricity? I fed the wire through wrong? Not grounding the clamp right?

This is real annoying as It's the only MIG i can afford right now and I have some projects to work on.

Don't wanna use stick only if that's the last option.

Someone help me out! :(

 

This is the welder here.. Same body, same switches, toggles, everything apart from the maker.

 

Here.

Push and pull type wire feeds are so much easier to use

Found out why it kept blowing fuses.. I forgot to switch the polarities. Right?

It is a gas and gasless welder. I had it on gas..

Now when I get the refund.. 3rd time's the charm right? Will it keep burning out?

If it does, I'm getting money back and not exchange only, can anyone recommend a cheap but good gasless mig?

Sorry for posts with no pics :(

I've recommended and used these for a while now!

No shit, it's ridiculous how good this machine is for the money!! They are about 1700ish now I think.

Just been practicing doing some stick welding.

Slowly getting there lol.

Tried for the first time to cut 2 pieces and make a T, turned out pretty good for a newb haha.

Also welded an exhaust, grinded half and left half lol, let me know how I'm doing.

Tips are most welcome :D

its pretty bad.. you must have a shakey hand or something, theres no steady weld fillet on the T pieces and too much splatter. looks too cold also. turn the head up and focus the weld a bit better
