MIG conversion for Lincoln Weld Pak 100
So I got a Lincoln Weld Pak 100 and have been using it for a while just with flux core wire. Man do these welds look like poop.
I've had the conversion kit K610-1 that converts it to MIG. New noozle, tips, gun liner, solenoid, tubing, and regulator. (mig spool too)
It says to replace the gun liner for the newer size wire, but I think my wire is the same for the mig and flux wire. Is it necessarily to replace this if the wire is the same?
Also which is better Argon or CO2? Cheaper?
What do I have to do if I wanted to swap back to flux core real quick? Just change noozles and spools?
What are the benefits of MIG compared to Flux? Ive heard less penetration so you can weld on thinner metals and the welds look a whole lot better.
