    I don't want to sound stupid...But I have no idea what that is. Im just using a Lincoln 220 stick welder. I only been sneaking in their a few times. Next time i'll find out what setting it's on and what not.

    I took welding for 3 years and 2 of those years i had 2 hours of welding everyday. I used to weld for my high school in competitions and such. But i hardly weld anymore. Its good though that i have a skill like that now.

    Very nice welds btw. very consistent with the bead. All i used to weld in school was galvanized. i dont know how many times splatter got in my shoes and gloves.

    Well when I working in the refineries, I was the one who grinded all the Galvanized coating off the steel. I hated working with it.
