    Would they be getting good penetration?

    Exactly. But you don't spray on vertical welds, right?
    I don't do much spray.... but I have been told that there are some cases where you can spray vertical down...........

    If it was 80/20 or greater Argon..ratio....you could spray with it.....like.. 90/10...95/05...

    Yup, yup and yup. I made trailers for 8 or 9 years and ran downhills on goosenecks. Can't tell you the voltage or wire speed that was way before all the fancy stuff of the new welders. But they held and are still holding some being 40 years old...Bob

    Vertical down settings on gooseneck trailers!!

    Hi all! First post here. I have been to a couple of trailer builders lately and watched them running vertical down in mig. They were using 70S-6 .035 wire with 75/25 gas at 27 volts and a wire speed of 660! My question, wouldn't this be WAY too fast to get penetration especially in the neck of the trailer where all of the stress is located? I would think you would want to run at 21 volts and around 300 on the wfs.
Working...
