The Welder and 75/25 bottle showed up right on schedule today and after a very busy day I managed to take some time to read up on it. Learned how to set up proper spool tension using a block of wood. Then I put down two test welds on 1/4" with SMIG. I think it works great. I was working with the material on the ground with a fixed lens so it is what it is but I'm stoked with what I see so far. I really like this new toy.
Here is what I did with two practice beads. I'm sure I'll do much better once the auto darkening helmet shows up and I am able to get some kind of table top so I don't have to squat and weld on the ground.
