After tig welding mostly and a little stick and setting in amperage then trying to understand this constant voltage is trying, to say the least. I'm fairly proficient in mig welding as well but I've always used the cheat sheet on the inside of the side cover. After years of doing that and knowing what a,b,c,d settings would weld I can't hardly grasp this voltage setting. Anyone have any easier way to understanding voltage settings on a mig?
The other problem is the extreme black soot after running a bead. Never had this problem until the new welding machine. Running the reg around 17-18. Here's a pic of some tack weld. Any ideas what's causing the black soot. .035 solid wire with 75-25% argon mix.
