Welder buying spam

Downloaded an Everlast instruction manual, so much more detail than BOC give.

0 is 50/50 balance, so either -30 or 30 is 70% (I'm still reading it lol)


I've been aiming for balled tungsten the whole time lol


Edit: Between the Everlast instructions and the video @Transom posted I think I've got it figured it, -30 is 70% negative.

it was about 30 where the tungsten was balling and splattering away so yeah that would have been 30% negative.

Think I'm getting it figured out again


/\ 80Hz, 70/30ish (edit 80/20, -30 on the setting, 0 is 50/50 so -30 would be 80/20) , 120a, pulse 2Hz down to 80a. Filler rod from Bunnings kept giving bright green flashes and leaving the soot marks??


Same amperages and balance, 120Hz.

Does anyone else have an Optrel panoramaxx helmet?

I need some of the replacement front lenses. 5000.270. Mine are all burnt and stained. I might have a go polishing an old one... like plastic headlights.

Looks like they will cost about $90(incl freight) for 5 from Proline Welding supplies. I guess $18 each doesn't sound so bad... for a molded bit of plastic.

Is this pretty much how much they cost everywhere, or is there somewhere better to get them?

WD40 didn't do much. I gave it a polish with jif. Definitely an improvement, the staining is much reduced, but it's a little hazy still. Clearer than it was before, but not like new. Still want to get some new ones.
