    Intro

    Hi my name is Phil but there is actually someone else named Phil in this forum so I became Fil.
    I am a true newbie. I have a cheap *** wire feed flux core 110 volt welder. And also have a old craftsman stick welder but don't currently have a 220 outlet to try it out! Always wanted to weld so I'm getting my feet wet. That flux core welder is very frustrating. Sometimes I can guess the settings and make professional looking welds. And other times I just can't get it to work well. Splatter all over the place.

    Welcome! What brand of wire are you using, if not Lincoln NR 211 give it a try.
