  • Miller 211 newbie excess wire feed . Having to clip every time

    Son gave me his Miller 211 and I am just getting started. Doing some welding on small projects that require a lot of start and stop. Seems like every time I do a weld I am having to clip after every weld. Is that normal or am I doing something wrong?

    Just hit the trigger and go. What are you welding? And how much is sticking out after you stop? ...Bob

      Let go of the trigger before you pull away from the weld. Even if you do end up with it a little long, unless you need a really clean start, especially on thin material, there's no need to cut it before starting the next weld. The excess length or balled tip will burn off pretty much immediately.

        Usually it is user error when you have too much wire sticking out at the end. Most likely scenario is that your stick out gets bigger from the start of the weld to the end, in other words, you end up holding the gun too far away.
