MIG Farm Tips


● Listen to the sound the arc is making. If you hear a sound like you’re frying bacon, then you’re doing it right. If it hisses, then your voltage might be too high, and if it’s loud and crackly, it might need turning up.

● The stickout is the length the wire sticks out from the MIG gun. Keep this short at around 1⁄4 inch for a more stable arc.

● In MIG welding, you only need to use one hand to hold the gun. Use your second hand to steady and support your hand holding the gun for extra precision and comfort.

● Have the arc positioned at the front of the weld when pushing forward. This will help for better penetratio­n.
