I’m trying to arc weld some trim holes closed using the stitch welder. The welder is a Campbell Hausfield 110v arc welder and I’m using fast fill rods rated for 115v and 20amps (breaker rating I am assuming). My problem is that I’m not getting a good puddle of molten metal – it kind of piles up like (sorry for the imagery) a pile that my dog leaves in the backyard. If I turn up the amperage at all past the 45-55 amps, I start loosing the original sheet metal quickly.
Any tips or suggestions? Please don’t suggest a MIG or TIG, I would love to have one, just don’t have the $$$.
