What Electrode are you welding?

Suggested Amperage Range:

Use less amps on thin metal; more amps on thick metal.

Polarity:

 

DCEP: DC, Electrode Positive (reverse polarity) has the most weld penetration

AC: medium weld penetration (can be more spatter)

DCEN: DC, Electrode Negative (straight polarity) has the least weld penetration
