The noodle setting is a very low voltage setting, it was designed for very thin sheet metal and body work, the wire actually heats up and adheres to the base material, versus burning off. If I remember correctly, this feature was only available for a few years. You could do the same thing today with any machine just by increasing the arc length a bunch, which as you can imagine, welds like crap, spatter, harsh arc,etc; but it really reduces the amount of heat you put into the base material.
