Welder Contact Tips

what contact tip will i requirement for welding?

i’ve got a clarke 100en welder and .8mm gasless wire but there’s a .6mm contact tip about the welder my real question is,even though the wire experienced it won’t feed will i must change tip to .8,and can gasless wire use gas,another bit is can one make use of a bigger contact tip e.g.1.0mm with this particular wire

The main reason the .8 wire experiences the .6 contact tips would be that the tip is worn to the .8mm size. Regardless replace the end with a brand new .8mm tip to complement how big the wire. Once the tips will get worn-out it’ll arc inside and weld the wire to within the end or cause continue the wire and won’t feed right. A brand new tip will correct this problem. Gasless wire or flux core wire was initially made to be went with gas. It wasn’t up until the 1990′s it grew to become referred to as a dual shield. Adding gas provides you with better transmission but you still suffer from the slag after welding. You may even wish to consider some nozzle dip or spray because it will lubricate the end and let it last a while longer also helping using the feeding problem. I love the dip because the price is less also it lasts more than wartrol. Best of luck.

Here are a handful of welding sites that my help,
