Decals!

where on-line could I find a site that shows you how to set the temp, wire speed, and such for a MIG welder?

I have looked and could not find any

I'M BACK

I know you said online, but at homedepot there is a welding handbook that I found to be really helpful. And it's only 15 dollars

I'll look for some online sites too
