Few welding questions
So when I bought my welding kit it came with a hand held face sheild so I went and bought a head mounted with auto dimming lens and its still pretty bright to the point where when I look up with the face sheild off i can still see green blots etc for a few minutes. Is this normal or should I find a better lens perhaps one that doesn't auto dim?
I tend to pull rather than push so I can't see the welding pool to good should I break my habit and push? Any trick for setting wire speed/power for metal thickness or am i just gonna have to practice and learn this?
Sometimes when welding it will cut out for a second while welding, the connections are good and im keeping my hand the same distance from the metal so Im guessing its a wire speed that needs to be turned up, or do you think its something else?
Sorry for the long read and thanks.
