a. Optimal Pressure = 65 PSI
b. Optimal Flow = 3.5 cu ft/min
3. Use a piece of scrap sheet metal and perform a test cut.
4. Make sure your tip stays in contact with the work piece.
5. Replace electrode or tip when damaged or if they show excessive wear.
- Drag torch while holding at a 15-30° angle.
