As you weld with a Lincoln MIG Welder, you should consider the thickness of the material and wire. For instance, if you want to want to work with a wire diameter of 0.30mm and 9.5mm material thickness, leave the welder o  19 and 340. But if you prefer working with the same wire diameter but an 8mm material thickness, adjust the welder to 20 and 375.

Asides from these earlier mentioned settings, there are also settings for using an 0.30 wire diameter with the thickness of other materials. As expected, these adjustments provide the right wire and voltage speed to these metals.

On this part of the chart, you will also find varying settings needed for dealing with a combo of 0.30 wire size/ER70S-6/75%AR/25%CO2+20CFH. As you check through the chart, you will notice that the 0.30mm wire size requires a welder setting of 21 and 310 for material with 9.5mm thickness. But the same wire diameter requires 20.5 voltage and 285 wire speed to work with an 8mm thickness.

What is a Run-In on a MIG Welder?

According to experts, the Run In setting allows the user to tune the run-in speed of the wire to get the smoothest arc start possible. Also, this setting keeps the wire from entering the puddle as soon as the trigger gets released.

How to Adjust the Lincoln MIG Welder?

If you are using the Lincoln MIG welder for the first time, it would help if you set up the Lincoln MIG Welder properly. For the best results, go through the manual that came with your welder. Supposing you can’t find a copy, perform an online search and download a digital copy for your welder.
