    Monte: What's the material thickness? I rarely use the pulser, unless it's thin material. Tungsten type?

    As Sundown mentioned, it's easy to "pull back" on the torch, which changes your arc length. As a rule of thumb, arc length should be one electrode diameter.

    Remember, this is a CC process, and like SMAW the voltage (electrical pressure) varies with arc length.

    Its easy to mistakenly do as you start moving both hands in sync.

    Adding filler with one hand and unknowingly moving the other hand with the same motion.

    Just maybe Sundown is correct.

    Only other time I seen something similer is from running the welding machine from a gas generator that couldn't
    keep up.
    Ok...I understand.

    Not sure what SundownIII is saying.

    SundownIII can you explain?
    "You don't realize it, but you're changing the tungsten to work length."

    Just asking.

    Arc length.

    You don't realize it, but you're changing the tungsten to work length.

    Not that it addresses your problem, but shouldn't you be tigging steel on DCEN?

    Does it happen when your running in pulse? Cause that pulse runs from where ever you set your peak amperage to where ever you set your low or background amperage

    started a topic why is this

    why is this

    Ok I have a Sync 200 and am tigging steel on dcep...160 amps. The arc will start, make a puddle and I start to add filler and then without lifting my foot off the pedal pushed to max, the arc will get smaller and less power and then it may get to full power again without me changing anything. ??????????
Working...
