    What if I don't own torches?

    Big torches are nice for thick material, but sometimes slowing down and using a small carbon makes neater work and less clean-up later.

    Why would you want to gouge with a 1/8 carbon?
    Save a lot of trouble and use a scarfing tip.

    I called a friend that works at Miller and got his advice. I've done it with a Deltaweld (CV) many, many times, so I knew it is possible. I'll probably pick up small arc rig and give it a try. Sooooooooo much easier than grinding!

    "With small carbons i.e. 1/8 and under yes. Although I would rec a CC
    machine due tot he volt/amp curve. You can carry longer arc lengths
    without carbon pick up in a CC mode. You will also have to jumper the
    trigger leads and opend the drive rolls to keep from feeding wire every
    where."

    What about a Dynasty 200, with small carbons? I know it doesn't have the ***** to really go to town, but would running air carbons actually damage it as long is you don't overload it? Definately not going to try it without knowing.
