    Sorry. I was basing that conclusion the fact that he says they use the same tungsten on the Miller at work without issue.

    You know the gas is good. You know the tungsten is good. You're pretty sure the metal is clean. Next thing I would do is check for leaks in the air line and torch. Also, don't assume that settings...

    Some people seem to prefer upslope and downslope when in 2T mode. Jody over at Welding Tips and Tricks even has a video where he talks about using the torch switch with up/downslope to do a manual...

    Congrats! Shows what, "We haven't had any other complaints," gets ya. For all the other suggestions I made, my money was on bad gas the whole time. Make sure you call them back and let them know...

    I'm not qualified to judge for myself, but I have welded under the tutelage of those who say that 1/8" is the max stickout unless you're using a gas lens. I use a gas lens exclusively, so I'm not...

    I re-read your original post and noticed you mentioned browned edges. A brown/orange, rust-colored halo around the bead is often a sign of contaminated tungsten. With all the care you're taking,...

    You seem to have been pretty thorough in your testing. If you have access to another tank of gas, it certainly wouldn't hurt to test it out. Some gas companies will say anything to get you to go...

    If you are a "newbie," stop. Do not weld on things where failure of the weld could cause loss of life, serious injury, or expensive property damage. Leave that stuff to the folks who know what...

    Your mains is probably fine. I just figured it was worth mentioning. Trying on 110v isn't a bad idea. I'm sure someone from Everlast will chime in tomorrow, when they're back in the office. Or you...

    This is probably a silly question, but have you checked the consistency of your mains power? Mains power is usually pretty solid, but given that two separate machines have had the same problem, it...

    In general, when sizing a generator to run a welder, you need to significantly over-spec the generator. This is because a welder pulls a large amount of current just as the arc is struck, and this...
