Tips for Vertical Stainless Steel MIG

Postby Easy10pins » Mon Jun 19, 2017 8:25 am


I'm running some practice 304 test plates in my shop for an upcoming weld test.

I'm using ER308L .035 wire.

I started with base settings of 300ipm and 20v.

I'm using a Lincoln MP210.

I've tried varying weave techniques but end up with a very crowned up bead. If I weave too fast I end up with a very skinny crown but if I slow down and try to weave it like carbon steel I get a very fat crowned bead.

There has to be something I'm missing.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you and stay safe.
