Hi, could you tell me why the contact tip is not sticking outside the gas nozzle. If I was welding anything, say 4" thick, then I WOULD have the tip how you have it. (spray transfer). But for thin metal or butt weld root runs, I would have the tip longer so it stuck out of the gas shield. (dip transfer).

Daniel Simmons says:

The most informative video I’ve seen yet. Great work!

Claudy Focan says:

I always use a Knipex plier wrench, these don’t round nuts off and it will fit any fitting in the shop! 🙂

Also, you use 75-25, we mainly use 82-18. Does this make a big difference? Why would you choose either of these two mixes?

Awesome video….so when does the gas start to come out….is it automatic when the trigger is pulled?
Thanks

Be Helpful says:

At around 11:30, does that hose, that connects for the gas, need any lube on its o-rings?

Great video. I am learning a lot.
