Thought I'd asked this a while back,but can't find my post,so here it is. Welding a trailer hitch for a buddy on Saturday,and used the last of a 10 lb spool of Lincoln .030 steel wire. Had bought some Weldcote a few months ago at the suggestion of the local welding supplier. The old guy there apologized for Chinese wire,but led me to believe I didn't have a choice anymore. Switched out to the new spool,noticed it wasn't wound as tight as I would have liked,looked a little sloppy. A 10 pound spool of shit. Birdnested after running about 2 feet,so we cut off a helluva lot of it to get to a good end. This shit doesn't even sound right. Won't feed evenly,welds like shit,spatters in whole new ways. This is with a nice big Miller machine that's performed perfectly for years. My buddy was watching/holding while I welded... he asked me why I kept stopping in the middle. I told him it would stop feeding wire,wasn't me,then resume. Not sure this shit is even 100% steel. I've never had wire behave like this. You can look at my welds and tell which were done with the old spool of Lincoln,and which were the Weldcote shit. It's not been wet,wasn't unwrapped until we got ready to use it. After I bought it,I googled USA MIG wire,and didn't get much of an answer. Still didn't expect it to suck this bad. Any choices left?
