So with 75/25 gas, crank the 252 up as high as it will go and adjust wore feed speed accordingly. What is the maximum settings on the 252 for voltage-maybe I'm not reading it right, but it says 38VDC on the 252 page from Miller. https://www.millerwelds.com/equipment/w ... der-m00218
So realistically it may work with this machine and we'll play it as time goes. Thanks for the answers.

The Miller is rated at 250 amps at 28 volts.
Weld voltage is not the same as open circuit voltage.

If I was your teacher I'd tell you to go try maxing out your own machine.

I should point out that I only use machines over 300-400 amps, even at Tradeschool. But theroretically, yes. If you have access to .045 wire, that'll help as well.

Would using 100% argon be a better way to achieve spray transfer. I have that as my other option as well.

Page 14 and 15 of the document I linked to you will answer this for you :)

Thanks for that link Dave I spent an hour reading a lot of stuff I didn't know about Mig that I wish I had read a long time ago.

You're very welcome - Lincoln puts out some quality literature in my opinion :)

...now if I could just remember all of it I wouldn't have to re-read it every so often :D

Yeah I see Lincoln does a lot of educational stuff. Videos, literature, training systems the whole works. They have the upper hand for sure on that page.

Well I talked with moser fab and he runs spray with 75/25 with his 252 often. I gotta wait antiher week because of ACT testing and my teacher going to a conference. And of course we have had its just that our welding supply store dropped the gas off at the bus barn and not our room so they have to come pick up the empties still and then somebody has to move 200 yards on a cart.

200 yards. That's a small job site. Wait till you get on a average one where they leave the bottles at the front gate and you cart them a 1/4 mile through mud, and the rock they put down on a construction site that's somewhere in size between your head and your fist. Oh and the cart always has one flat tire when you need it.
