Excellent! Scott could you do the fillet with one side horizontal spray and the other side with the vert up spray?

Are you running a e71t-1 wire and whats the trade name of the one you like?

Pictures of these gas shielded flux wires are lacking as well

Same settings like this latest Esab .045- 717 dual-shield?

I took a picture of this at the Airgas show last year.
He ( His name escapes at the moment) ran it horizontal and did not change any settings and ran vertical on the hot piece. I'm not sure if this is
the vertical or horizontal because they looked the same.
He a great teacher on top of being a great guy.

It might be the Horizontal (spatter) but like I say, the
bead looked the same going up.

I dont know when I would get around to doing some fusion profiles with the dual-shield type wires because;
1) have to buy the spool
2) have to buy the drive rolls
3) dont know if I want to buy Miller drive rolls (read $ x 4) or get Lincoln (read less $ x 2) ?


Still if I dont put the Miller feeder to some use I may as well part with it...

Just looking for real world pictures done by the average Joe welder I dont know how easy it is for you to cut your fillets, but they sure make an interesting thing to look at with some naval jelly applied for the 'etching'

Hey, Ray. Save some bucks on the Miller rolls. Get Profax rolls instead. I can get them easier and cheaper. They work just as well as the Miller rolls, too.

I did notice some things in the ad copy, that looked liked they were pulled right out've past threads over on Hobart welding talk.

Believe something was said about that boards purpose as a marketing tool- not so much to push the products, but for market research.

No, that isn't why, but it sure helps. Shipping here from Appleton is getting 'spensive. Plus, it takes a lot longer. I can have the Profax parts in a day or two.....three being the fastest I can get things from Miller. The last Profax rolls I got were about 10 bucks cheaper than the Miller 50 series. Worked just as good. I am ordering another feeder in a few hours. I'm sure I will get Profax rolls for it when it gets here.

I have yet to find anyone that advertises any Profax anything, except Ram Welding Supply. If you find anyone, post it for me. I would like another option as always.
