Talking

Fitup was good for the fine welding job. I ground off all the crap and installed my own welds. I wire brushed the inside spot and welded that first.
Mig, .035 wire at 250 inches per minute, CP (controlled power) 1.5 on the machine. Controlled Power means 1.5 KW of power regardless of the volts and amps. Its odd, but works quite well once I got the hang of it. gas was 92 argon 8 Co2.

I charged the customer 1/2 hour.

Even a bad welder could have been a good grinder. He wasn't either one.

Kind of sad, but its bucks in my pocket.

The welder is a V350 with the upgrade panel. It does some funny things. Its an awesome machine.

In the CV Plain ol mig mode, any time I select under 17 volts, it just welds at the voltage it thinks is best. So no I can't set it at 15 volts. It just welds where it wants too. It does it well.

In the CC stick soft or crisp mode when I turn the arc force to 10, it goes into CAC or gouge mode.

I had to call Lincoln when I first bought the machine. Both those items were left out of the instruction manual.

Nope its just plain ol carbon steel. I spent longer grinding than I did welding on this one.

I like the jobs that show up at my shop.

I'm surprised the guy didn't paint it.
That's what most craftsmen of that stature do. Make it look goooooood!
