Default CFH not CFM

Remember that the flow rates for shielding gases are in CUBIC FEET PER HOUR not CUBIC FEET PER MINUTE

Yes, the manual also says CFH. Thanks for the heads up on all these things. Cutter, good idea on the spare CO2 bottle. I've been welding this morning but still appear to have plenty on wire on the small spool they gave me with the welder. My son also likes this welder better (he's 13, used the stick also). I want to get 2 more spools, one flux core and one steel, plus the c-25. I'll post a picture later of the new setup.

Thumbs up

Here's the new machine along with another shelf I did this morning. This one only has 3 coat hooks. Quick work with the hh140! Better welds too, especially on the FEM.

you might as well go ahead and buy a few 10 pound spools now. You will always need more wire. especially at 2 in the morning when your two inches away from finishing you project.

After a long argument on the phone will a local newbie welder here about terminology on gas flow rates , I took a drive over and showed him what the regulators had printed on them . He called me because he thought the regulators were bad . We had quite the go around on the phone and at his shop . He now understands the difference between the two terms . . Of course he calls someone else for advice now .
On flux core wire , be prepared for the pucker factor when you look at the price of a ten pound roll .
I have not run any since I ran out of the original roll that came with my HH175 , solid wire and CO2 does what I need it too . Dan

Thanks LU and MW. A visit to the LWS is warranted. I need to price some spools of wire and shielding gas-of course I'll need a bottle or two-one for gas and one for a beverage. I see that Tractor Supply and Horrible Freight have spools of core wire for sale, but the steel wire will be the main attraction for me since that seems to be the preferred method. I'm looking forward to trying it and really liked Tractor Supply, never had been there. I just registered the hh140 with Hobart. LU, sounds like you had a knock-down with the local newbie. I hope it resolves. That's why I like this site-it's calm good advice from people who put in their time. Valuable stuff. I hope I can pay it back as I go along.

I've had good luck with the Hobart brand of wire from Tractor Supply. Problem is since I've moved to Yuma, nearest TSC is well over 500 miles away. So, I have picked up some Raynard at the local LWS & it works good.

I'll look online for more Hobart brand wire when these spools run out. I didn't care for the Lincoln Innershield. But I haven't used much of it, it's just different I guess.

Yes I had to use some very unpleasant words with him as he called me while I was in the middle of a very important meeting , once and leave a message is fine but twelve times is ridiculous .
TSC has pretty good solid wire in the Hobart brand , but I refuse to pay the premium price to run flux-core in the HH175 when I can buy the big spools that fit on my Miller 10-E feeder . I get the larger spool for about the same price as the 10lb spool (at last check) at my LWS and it is better wire . Dan

I'll check out some prices this weekend. During the week I have absolutely no time. I am really interested in a price on a tank of c-25 from the LWS.
