I stand corrected. I pulled out the manual for the Millermatic 252 today, and looked at the volt/amp curves, and OCV does not match setpoint voltage below about 50A, or basically while not welding.

Our ancient Lincoln CV305 transformer machine does seem to match OCV to the setpoint whether it's loaded or not.

My bad...

Ok so your saying my machine is a transformer machine? I haven't had a chance to use the volt meter while welding yet. Should I still? Sounds like I don't. lol I think. I read the manual I don't remember seeing anything specific like that in there. I have a lot to learn, thanks.
