    Have you tried using unobtanium? Or try magic....either should work.

    I have to weld thin wall duct work sometimes at work, and even after cleaning the galvanization off, it is still "dirty" so to speak. I have found using .030 cored (no shielding gas) works well. I have the ability to use either Pulse or Mig Mode and choose the latter.

    I tried a few other things that did not work so well. Using a variety of shielding gasses only produced more spatter, and pulse welding in several configurations made the arc rather unsteady. I did try several pulse configurations to get the background arc to hold, but ultimately had better luck in MIG Mode.

    Those 1134 rods would do the trick too, but you have to turn H3LL upside down to find it!��

    If you do not have time for adequate planning and preparation... you will get a garbage result.... clean and prep it first.... it will take less time in the long tun

    Do you have time to tell us what type of metal ... where..??? and what process & equipment you are using..??
