To make it easier and much cleaned give the area a dampening with anti-spatter spray. Does anyone have an opinion on the same spec. wire in Hobart? I am just curious as I have always used Lincoln and am quite happy and Hobart is about $20 more per 10# roll. Is it worth it or just personal preference?
I think it's a good question, I've been using Washington Alloy at $50 per 11 lb spool.
Works good so I would switch only if I could find cheaper alternative. But that's really as cheap as I've found so far.
