    Hey guys, my shop just recently got me a millermatic 350p, im having problems setting the wire drive tension, under the hood it almost looks like its pulsing. Im guessing it could be the tension.

    troubleshooting (bad welds)

    I'm welding thinner gauge metal tubing (20-16). Sometimes, i notice that when i let go of the trigger, my pool "grows" and gets a point on it. What is happening here and what can I do to fix this? I'm running autofeed at about 3.8 volts. If i go higher I risk burning through.

Yesterday I was assigned a purely aluminum project that should take me about 4 days to complete. At the end of yesterday I...

  • Bluestar 2e power works, welder does not work

    Hello,I have a Bluestar welder SN # HK269609. I also have the correct owners manual downloaded. 6 months ago it was working OK but now it will not arc when set to the weld position.

    syncrowave 300 low weld output

    I am trying to repair a syncrowave 300 which has very low weld output (will not melt stick electrode). I have tried this machine with various settings (hi/low, AC/DC, with panel or remote control) and always the same thing. However when using the start current I can get plenty of power out, so the...
