Did GNAP give you some of that nice Murex 6011C?

Beats me, I'm lucky I can read the 6011 on it.

"Holey Cow !" is what you said ?

As you blew holes in the sheetmetal .....

yes, D.C. is quieter, is a sneaky little bastich.
Try reversing the polarity.

Murex E6011C, great stuff, I use constantly, I have it in 3/32” and 1/8”, in stock in theMachinery Closet and the service van.

Yep, I have transferred some of the E6011C to Norm, whether he used it, I can not swear to.

I reverse the polarity when doing thin sheet metal, electrode negative gives a wide shallow weld bead, making thin sheet metal weld a lot easier.
