    Hey Sberry

    1. The Voltage is: (THE HEAT) setting on your welder.
    What kind of welding machine do you have ?

    2. The (THE SPEED) setting is the rate of speed the wire comes out of your
    mig gun handle.

    Sberry, These setting you must ADJUST as to what guage of sheet metal you are welding. Being new to mig welding myself. I recently made several test welds on 18 gauge s/metal. and wrote 'em down on a piece of paper.

    When I found the 'HEAT' & 'SPEED' I was comfortable with; that would be the settings I'd use when welding 18 gauge sheet metal.

    It sure does beating the ups and downs and burning thru my work. It take THE GUESS WORK OUT of trying to find the RIGHT SETTINGS when I working on my '66 Ford Mustang Convertible.

    Hope this helps you ?

    GOD BLESS YOU

    Weld some coupons and look at the puddle. No chart needed.

    I would highly recommend you visit this site. It will pretty much give you all the information you ever wanted about GMAW. In fact, you may never need to ask another question about welding at all after doing some extensive reading on this site.

    I took a class a year ago using those, we used .023 solid wire for sheet. We were able to go by the chart inside the door, then tuned by ear.

    It'll be 25% Carbon Dioxide, CO2.

    I don't have the chart with me here, but you can download the manual for that unit, starting at the Service link at the top of the page.

    Hi Cruizer

    GAS is: 75/25 I believe its: 75% Argon and 25% Oxigen.

    WIRE Diameter: I'm using a .030 tip ~ if that helps you to help me.

    Wire Manufacturer: Harris; Shotgun

    Something like P J Harris; not sure on the P. J. However its a great wire.

    I hope this info help you to help me.

    Thank You Cruizer
    GOD BLESS
