Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LosRubios Works OK but spattered more than I expected
I am used to MIG welding using CO2 gas and non flux wire and tried this for the first time with a new 140 AMP 110V welder from Home Depot. I am far from a 'professional' welder but have done enough auto restoration projects to be able to lay down a decent-ish seam of weld that will hold reasonably well.
It seems to work well when I was welding two pieces of 1/4" steel plate together for a gate keeper however when I tried to weld some thin wall tube and turned down the voltage to avoid burning holes in the tubing, it spattered more than I would have expected. This could be one of the downsides of using a flux cored wire instead of a straight wire/gas set up or also because I may have needed a smaller .024 gauge wire for the thinner walled tube.
Either way, it seems to weld well with less spatter on higher voltages and thicker metal.

Unused spool in original packaging got rusty on one side of the spool after a few years, next to the HF spool that is still shiny. Was hoping the Lincoln wire would be better - had to trash the whole spool and wasted a few hours trying to figure out the problem. The rusty wire jams at the tip no matter how high the friction on the drive roller. HF wire worked better.

I have been using this wire since 2002, gone thru several spools. The cost isnt great but the quality is. Ive found, with my cheapy little flux-core welder, it does not like the lower amperage settings, tends to spatter and not give consistent penetration. It works excellent when i turn it up to the max though. I have not tried it in my Millermatic 135 yet, its set up on C-25 gas.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1FastTLR Good wire for when gas can't be. used.
Good wire, but why is the .030 more expensive than .035 wire?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jmartz Some good stuff
My first time using this wire. I'm using it on my HF 90 amp Flux core welder. My beads come out a lot nicer now after switching over to this stuff. The penetration is a bit better and there is less spatter. I'm hobby welding on a budget at this moment so I don't know if I'll be purchasing this again after I run out. You can't see my welds on the stuff I build so not too concerned about bead appearance. When work picks up, I'll gladly buy another spool of this stuff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DynaLowrider Nothing spectacular
Using this for general repair (plow frames, exhausts, etc.). Works like any other flux core that I've used except this actually jammed up in my Miller Millermatic 211 a few times. Even several spools of Harbor Freight wire has never done that. I won't ding it too hard for that since it was exceptionally cold when it happened. Will see what happens when it warms up.
