MIG Welding Tips : 1. Keep a 1/4 to 3/8 in stickout (electrode extending from the tip of the contact tube.) (Refer to Diagram 1. Electrode Extensions); 2. For thin metals, use a smaller diameter wire. For thicker metal use a larger wire and a larger machine. See machine recommendations for welding capacity. (Refer to Diagram 4. Welding Wire Thickness Chart).

MIG Welding Tips

1. Keep a 1/4 to 3/8 in stickout (electrode extending from the tip of the
contact tube.) (Refer to Diagram 1. Electrode Extensions)

2. For thin metals, use a smaller diameter wire. For thicker metal use
a larger wire and a larger machine. See machine recommendations
for welding capacity. (Refer to Diagram 4. Welding Wire Thickness
Chart)

3. Use the correct wire type for the base metal being welded. Use
stainless steel wires for stainless steel, aluminum wires for
aluminum, and steel wires for steel.
