    FCAW GS is gas shielded. You wouldnt happen to be an Ironworker would you? lol

    .045 I can run no problem and I love it. But my boss ordered like 30 spools of 1/16 wire and we have to use it all before he'll buy more wire. So if we need to weld 1/8" material its a 2 inch stickout and barely enough voltage to burn the wire off.

    Depending on what brand wire you are using, you can look on the Lincoln website, the ESAB website, the Hobart Bros. website, etc., and get some specific parameters for the wire you are using. Just like with politics, there is no "one size fits all",,,, they are all different. A smart boy should be able to figure this out for himself.

    dual shield

    I think 1/4 to 3/8ths stick out, i think 28 might be alittle to hot depends on the thickness of the plate, especially vert, it'll need time to build on start up w/o burning through then you can make a nice stringer up to you i wouldn't go no less than 20 though, that would be to cold,all machines are a little tempermental , keep an upper angle and take your time let it back fill as you work your way up and watch the puddle, good luck.

    Depends whether you are using self shielded or gas shielded flux core.....

    what are some good starting parameters and how much gas and stickout should i be using? I can lay every position down well except vertical at 28.5v and about 150 ipm. What's a good setting for vertical?
    how much gas..........?

    Best try this yourself, lots of flux wires, inner shield, outer shield, exetera, I'd be looking at the wire specs
