I'm about to do some welding and I'm very bad at it. All I have is a 120V MIG wire feed welder for smaller welding jobs (3/16" thick and smaller I think)
I have flux core welding wire in the machine. The wire is at least 5 years old. Does it ever go bad or can I use it forever?
I tried a sample welding piece lastnight and it came out terrible - very bad weld. It's probably just me or the setting on the machine, but I'm thinking it may be the flux core steel wire I'm using is old.
