    Difference between 2 welding wires

    What is the real world difference between E71T-GS and E71T-11? Can both be used in multi pass? What are other differences to a guy using straightened coil tube and drill stem for corrals??

    GS is not rated as multi-pass. Has to do with weld bead composition and diminishing dilution of the add mixture with multiple passes. Just for corrals it isn't something I'd worry about.

    What are the differences in arc characteristics in .035 and .045 in self shielding flux core?

    Provided one has all parameters set right, none other than the slightly wider arc cone, more deposition. No different than upping one size in stick. There will be some subtle differences from brand to brand naturally. I still have some .035 but haven't bought any in quite awhile. Pretty much all .045 now. If you need penetration, you generally also need some fill to go with it. More fill usually means less passes which helps keep the total heat input down too.
