Ac pulse arc welding using tug setup

Postby Davinci1Nut » Fri Nov 10, 2017 4:56 am

Hey guys I’m new to this forum so forgive me if I say anything that might upset some purists I tried a set up on my dynasty 350 yesterday and was quietly surprised I removed the tig torch and put my arc lead in that receptacle then set the unit on AC I have a wireless foot controller so left the settings for that I set the pulse to 1.7 pps 60% and 40% background
The rods were 3.2 smooth arc 6013 welding 6 mm 1/4 plate together no preheat just straight into welding using the foot pedal to start. well to my surprise what a weld I’ve not seen anything like it very little spatter and a look of stack of dimes! Now my question is will this weld be weaker or be of less integrity than normal setup in DC

I’ve never tried to weld stick with a foot pedal. But many rods do run just fine on AC.
I have more questions than answers

Actually, stick welding with a remote, like a pedal, is quite common in Europe. I'd think it quite handy for 308/309.
