Welder duty cycle is the percentage of
actual weld time that can occur in a ten
minute interval. For example, at a 10%
duty cycle, actual welding can occur for
one minute, then the welder must cool
for nine minutes.
Internal components of this welder are
protected from overheating with an
automatic thermal switch. A yellow
lamp is illuminated on the front panel
(on/off switch) if the duty cycle is
exceeded. Welding operations may
continue when the yellow lamp is no
longer illuminated.
Before every use;
1. Check condition of weld cables and
immediately repair or replace any
cables with damaged insulation.
Do not operate this
welding machine
with cracked or missing insulation on
welding cables, electrode holder, or
power cord.
Every 3 months;
Replace any unreadable labels on the
welder. Use compressed air to blow all
dust and lint from the ventilation
openings.
2. Check condition of power cord and
immediately repair or replace any
cord if damaged.
3. Check condition of electrode holder
insulating pieces and immediately
replace cracked or missing
insulators. Verify that all fasteners
are tight and insulated.
Welding Guidelines
General
This line of welding machines utilizes a
process known as Shielded Metal-Arc
Welding (SMAW). This process is used
to bond metals by heating them with
an electric arc created between the
electrode and the work piece.
Electrodes used for shielded metal arc
welding have two parts. The inner core
is a metal rod or wire that should be
similar in composition to the base
metal. The outer coating is called flux.
Various types of flux exist. Each coating
is used for a particular welding
situation.
While the metal is molten, it can be
contaminated by elements in the air.
This contamination could weaken the
weld. The flux coating creates a
protective barrier called slag that
protects the molten metal from
contaminants.
When current (amperage) flows
through the circuit to the electrode, an
arc is formed between the end of the
electrode and the work piece. The arc
melts the electrode and the work piece.
The melted metal of the electrode
flows into the molten crater and forms
a bond with the work piece as shown in
Figure 7.

NOTE: Discontinue using and discard
electrodes that burn down to 1 to 2
inches from the electrode holder.
STRIKING AN ARC
Place the bare end of the electrode in
the holder. Grip the holder lightly to
reduce tiring of the hand and arm.
NOTE: Always keep the jaws of the
holder clean to insure good electrical
contact with the electrode.
Be careful not to
touch the work
piece or welding bench with the
electrode as this causes arc flashes.
The best method of striking an arc is
the scratching method. Drag the
electrode at an angle along the surface
much like striking a match. Upon
contact with the plate, lift the

NOTE: Should the electrode stick to the
work piece, break it loose by quickly
twisting or bending at the holder while
pulling upward. If the electrode does
not break loose, disengage the
electrode by releasing it from the
holder.
ELECTRODE TYPE AND SIZE
Two types of electrodes are
recommended for this welder. The
electrodes are commonly known by the
AWS (American Welding Society)
designation as follows:
1. E-6013 GENERAL PURPOSE
•
All position, smooth deposit rod
with low spatter.
•
For all mild steel and general
purpose work.
Shielded Metal Arc Welder
Welding Guidelines (Continued)
2. E-7014 FAST FILL
WELD ANGLE
•
Smooth bead and fast deposition
•
Ideal for joints with poor fitup and
general repair work
Weld angle is the angle at which the
electrode is held during the welding
process. Using the correct angle ensures
proper penetration and bead formation.
Electrode angle involves two positions travel angle and work angle (See Figure 9).
NOTE: E-6011 and E-6018 are not
recommended for use with these
welders. Recommended electrode
diameter is 1/16” or 5/64”. Call (800)
746-5641 for availability.

Arc Welding Basics
Four basic techniques affect weld
quality. These are: amperage setting,
weld angle, arc length, and travel
speed. Proper use of these techniques is
necessary for good weld quality.
Travel Angle
AMPERAGE SETTING
The correct amperage involves the
adjustment of the welding machine to
the required amp setting. This is
regulated by a knob on the welder. The
amperage required depends on the size
(diameter) of electrode used and the
thickness of the work piece.
Consult specifications listed on the
welder. Excessive amps burn through
light metals and the weld bead is flat
and porous (See Figure 10). The bead
appears high and irregular if the
amperage is too low.
NOTE: Weld bead width (W)
should be approximately
twice the diameter fo the
electrode rod used.
Work Angle
Figure 9 - Weld Angle
Travel angle is the angle in the line of
welding and may vary from 5º to 45º
from the vertical, depending on
welding conditions.
Work angle is the angle from
horizontal, measured at right angles to
the line of welding.
NOTE: Right handed welders should
weld from left to right. Left handed
welders should weld from right to left.
The electrode should always point into
the weld puddle as shown.
ARC LENGTH
Arc length is the distance from the
work piece to the tip of the electrode,
the distance which the arc must travel.
A proper arc length is essential to
generate the heat needed for welding
(See Figure 10). An arc that is too long
produces an unstable arc, reduces
penetration, increases spatter, and
causes flat and wide beads. Too short
an arc does not create enough heat to
melt the work piece, the electrode has
a tendency to stick, penetration will be
poor, and uneven beads with irregular
ripples result. A proper arc should be
no longer then the diameter of the rod.
The sound of a proper arc is a steady,
crisp sizzle, similar to bacon frying.
TRAVEL SPEED
The travel speed is the rate at which
the electrode is moved across the weld

Speed Too Fast
Normal Amps, Arc Length, Speed

Figure 10 - Weld Appearance
For most applications, a 45º travel

For specific applications, consult an arc
welding handbook.

area (See Figure 10). When the speed is
too fast, the bead is narrow and bead
ripples are pointed as shown. When the
speed is to slow, the weld metal piles
up and the bead is high and wide. To
control travel speed, watch the width
of the weld bead (not the arc) when
welding. The weld bead is the orange,
molten metal behind the arc. The width
should be approximately twice the
diameter of the welding rod. Control
travel speed to obtain a consistent
bead width.
SLAG REMOVAL
Wear ANSI
approved safety
glasses (ANSI Standard Z87.1) and
protective clothing when removing
slag. Hot, flying debris can cause
personal injury to anyone in the area.
WELD PASSES
Sometimes more then one pass is
necessary to fill the joint. The root pass
is first, followed by filler passes and the
cover pass (See Figure 11). If the pieces
are thick, it may be necessary to bevel
the edges that are joined at a 60º
angle. Remember to remove the slag
before each pass.
Cover
Filler
Root
Figure 11 - Weld Passes
After completing the weld, wait for the
welded sections to cool. A protective
coating called slag now covers the weld
bead which prevents contaminants in
the air from reacting with the molten
metal. Once the weld cools to the point
that it is no longer glowing red, the
slag can be removed. Removal is done
with a chipping hammer. Lightly tap
the slag with the hammer and break it
loose from the weld bead. The final
clean-up is done with a wire brush.
When making multiple weld passes,
remove the slag before each pass.
WELDING POSITIONS
Four basic welding positions can be used;
flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead.
Welding in the flat position is easier than
any of the others because welding speed
can be increased, the molten metal has
less tendency to run, better penetration
can be achieved, and the work is less
fatiguing.
Other positions require different
techniques such as a weaving pass,
circular pass, and jogging. A higher skill
level is required to complete these welds.
All work should be performed in the
flat position if possible. For specific
applications, consult an arc welding
handbook.

Glossary of Welding Terms
AC or Alternating Current - electric
current that reverses direction
periodically. Sixty cycle current travels
in both directions sixty times per
second.
Arc Length - the distance from the
end of the electrode to the point
where the arc makes contact with the
work surface.
Base Metal - the material to be
welded.
Butt Joint - a joint between two
members aligned approximately in the
same plane.
Crater - a pool, or pocket, that is
formed as the arc comes in contact with
the base metal.
DC or Direct Current - electric current
which flows only in one direction. The
polarity (+ or -) determines which
direction the current is flowing.
DC Reverse Polarity - occurs when
the electrode holder is connected to
the positive pole of the welding
machine. Reverse Polarity directs more
heat into melting the electrode rather
then the work piece. It is used on
thinner material.
DC Straight Polarity - occurs when
the electrode holder is connected to
the negative pole of the welding
machine. With straight polarity more
heat is directed to the work piece for
better penetration on thicker material.
Electrode - a coated metal wire having
approximately the same composition as
the material being welded.
Fillet Weld - approximately a triangle
in cross-section, joining two surfaces at
right angles to each other in a lap, T or
corner joint.
Flux - the material used to prevent or
dissolve oxides and other weld
contaminants.
Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) also called Gasless, is a welding process
used with a wire-feed welding
machine. The weld wire is tubular with
flux material contained inside for
shielding.
contaminants while the weld is
solidifying (cooling). Slag should be
removed after weld has cooled.
Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) also called MIG, is a welding process
used with a wire feed welding
machine. The wire is solid and an inert
gas is used for shielding.
Spatter - metal particles thrown from
the weld which cool and harden on the
work surface. Spatter can be minimized
by using a spatter resistant spray on the
work piece before welding.
Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) also called TIG, is a welding process
used with welding equipment with a
high frequency generator. The arc is
created between a non-consumable
tungsten electrode and the work piece.
Filler metal may or may not be used.
Tack Weld - weld made to hold parts
in proper alignment until final welds
are made.
Lap Joint - a joint between two
overlapping members in parallel
planes.
Open Circuit Voltage (OCV) - the
voltage between the electrode and the
work clamp of the welding machine
when no current is flowing (not
welding). The OCV determines how
quickly the arc is struck.
Overlap - occurs when the amperage is
set too low. In this instance, the molten
metal falls from the electrode without
actually fusing into the base metal.
Porosity - gas pockets, or cavities,
formed during weld solidification. They
weaken the weld.
Penetration - the depth into the work
piece that has been heat effected by
the arc during the welding process. A
good weld achieves 100% penetration
meaning that the entire thickness of
the work piece has been heated and
resolidified. The heat effected area
should be easily seen on the opposite
side of the weld.
Shielded Metal Arc Welding
(SMAW) - also called Stick, is a welding
process with uses a consumable
electrode to support the arc. Shielding
is achieved by the melting of the flux
coating on the electrode.
Slag - a layer of flux soot that protects
the weld from oxides and other
12
Travel Angle - the angle of the
electrode in the line of welding. It
varies from 5º to 45º depending on
welding conditions.
T Joint - made by placing the edge of
one piece of metal on the surface of
the other piece at approximately a 90º
angle.
Undercut - a condition that results
when welding amperage is too high.
The excessive amperage leaves a
groove in the base metal along both
sides of the bead which reduces the
strength of the weld.
Weld Pool or Puddle - a volume of
molten metal in a weld prior to its
solidification as weld metal.
Weld Bead - a narrow layer or layers of
metal deposited on the base metal as
the electrode melts. Weld bead width is
typically twice the diameter of the
electrode.
Work Angle - the angle of the
electrode from horizontal, measured at
right angles to the line of welding.
