Can you use shielding gas
with FCAW-SS wires?
Q: I have a small MIG welder, which I sometimes use to weld with Innershield® NR-212 self-shielded flux-cored (FCAW-SS) wire. I know it is a gasless wire, however, is it okay to use shielding gas with it?

Diesel Engine Driven Welders: Huge Price Increases Coming in 2013
The transition from EPA Tier 4i (Interim) diesel engines to EPA Tier 4 Final becomes effective on January 1, 2013. For diesel engines over 25 HP, engine suppliers are re-designing their engines to meet new, tighter EPA compliance standards. The new standards require a 90% reduction
of particulate emissions.
The impact of the new standards will be substantially higher engine costs which will result in significant price increases for diesel engine-driven welder products sold and operated in the U.S. While final prices have not been established yet, price increases could be up to 50%! Similar price increases are anticipated in 2013 for products to be sold and operated in Canada.
For areas of the world outside the U.S. and Canada, existing diesel welders will continue to be available in 2013, and price changes for 2013 are anticipated to be typical of year-to-year changes.

How I Did It: Compact Welding Table
When Bruce Pease of Riverview, Michigan fabricated this welding table, he had his limited garage space in mind. He designed it in the shape of a "U" so the table could be stored with his Lincoln Electric Square Wave™ TIG 175 PRO welder.
The table is made from 1" square steel tube and
1/2 x 1-1/2 x 1/8" C-channel. Bruce put 1/4 x 1-1/2" squares on the bottom of the legs thru which he drilled and tapped for 3/8" bolts to act as levelers if needed.
The table height is 28 inches, which Bruce finds comfortable for welding in a chair. The inside width is 16 inches and wide enough to clear the welder.
The above project images and descriptions have been published to show how individuals used their ingenuity for their own needs, convenience and enjoyment. Only limited details are available and the projects have NOT been engineered by the Lincoln Electric Company. Therefore, when you use the ideas for projects of your own, you must develop your own details and plans and the safety and performance of your work is your responsibility.
