Default Anti spatter

Had to use the flux core today but I always find it a pain to clean up as I use it gasless and the spatter goes everywhere, borrowed the canola spray from the kitchen and gave it a liberal dose before welding, it worked a treat, cleaning was a brush and a wipe down with acetone, although brake cleaner might be better
In this application contamination of the weldment was not an issue so as I have a heap more of these to do before Xmas I reckon it wil cut the overall time down with clean up being reduced so much.

When this runs out I’ll try it, found it leaves a baked on coat which resists rust so I’ll give them a quick flap disc in future before rusting.
I am making a few more wheels for Xmas.

I happen to LIKE the spatter from flux core!

Makes it easier to slide heavy parts on the welding table, kinda like ball bearings

Yep know a lot of people who use the spray cooking oil for anti splatter but really it's not that much cheaper than the anti splatter from the LWS here..
but is convenient when your out and have some in the kitchen cabinet

I use Pam for grilling as my anti-spatter spray. No SDS to worry about with OSHA, but it might make you hungry for a steak.
