I just got my first MIG machine -- the Migweld140 and had a few questions....
1. It came with a spool of .6 mm which, if do the math, is .0236 inches. Is this .023 mig wire or, as the manual states, .025" mig wire? I have a spool of Lincoln .025" and it's slightly thicker than what came with the Longevity 140. If it is .023 the reference chart doesn't have any specs on using .023 mig wire so I assume it's ok and just dial down a little from the .025" reference?
2. I also have a spool of solid steel .035 wire. There aren't any suggested settings for using .035 SOLID (just flux) with the 140. I ran a few beads and it was fine with this wire and C25 gas but is this a problem for the machine? Should I only use a max of .030 solid wire with C25 and if I need to work on thicker material use .035" flux core with the 140?
