after having my cousin weld most of my stuff for me i decided i would learn how to weld myself....went looking for a 115v welder for portability (didn't have 220 anyhow) the red 135 plus then checked out the blue 135 and after taking in consideration the spool gun and other stuff decided on the blue...
then read some more about power....decided i didn't want to buy another on right away so was looking at the 210...which is what my cousin has and he does some awesome stuff..(been welding for John Deere for a long time)
at outlet asked about 210...big bucks..back to 135....575.00 no cart...so asked about a 175 i seen in box in corner...somebody ordered last year never come and got...it has cart and i can have it for 630.00 just 55.00 more than 135 so i got it....took home wired 220 and have had my cousin walking me thru it..lol...
anyhow the here is the question... if you have two controls voltage and wire speed why would they tie wire speed into voltage? to prevent burnback into the tip? and it a guy knows that a voltage increase speeds up wire why can't he just take it into consideration and cut it a little if he thinks it warrants it?
am asking this question cuz if i know why its tied in it might make it easier for me to understand and adjust accordingly....
