  • hf for stick welding using a syncro 250

    Hi Diesel, It's been a while but I think I've used HF on Al stick to make restarts easier in tight places.Give me a couple of days to get out in the shop and try it and take notes on set-up.By the way I have a 250 Syncro 98 vintage transformer machine....

  • O/A Pressures

    Dave, My point is every manufacturer has their own unique design and engineering and their owners and safety manuals sould be read completely and followed to SAFELY get the most out of what they designed that tool to do.

  • Pressure settings

    The best advise I can give is get the Owners Manual that goes with your torch.It will have the proper tip size and pressure for what you are doing.While the settings that were given for a Victor are correct,so are the settings that Welderdude gave for a Smith which...
