I made an executive decision, assumed it was ok to eliminate post cut dwell for cooling. It
shortened cut time from 49 min to 42 min. Let me know if this is not recommended.
I am cutting 11G mild steel
pierce @ .125"
220329 fine cut nozzle & 120926 electrode.
Cut height appears to be about .060"
Cut with steel 1/4" above water.
I am getting 336 starts per consumable set, about 1500 to 1700 inches of cut.
The cut quality is ok to good but there is heavy dross on the many small 1" fonts. The longer
perimeter cuts are much better. I tried 80 volts (closer tip height) and 81V 70 IPM and faster but
cut quality (taper) was worse. Any ideas to fine tune to reduce dross?
