160P arc welding question

05-15-2008, 05:15 PM
I am waiting on my new 160P to get here. I have looked over the owners manual and it doesnt appeart to have any info on setting up for stick welding. According to the front of the machine the neg side is the electrode and the positive side is the ground, or DC straight pol. if you need DC reverse polarity such as welding 7018s do you just switch the leads around to get reverse polarity or is there a switch to change polarity?
