With infinitely variable amperage settings, it’s a versatile AC welding machine ideal for home, farm & ranch, shop or contractor use. Convenient input power at 120 volts permits you to plug it in anywhere. Automatic thermal overload protection keeps the machine secure from power surges. Tough, scratch resistant metal cabinet keeps the inner working parts secure from most outside elements. It also includes a face shield, combination chipping hammer and brush, electrode holder, ground clamp and starter pack of electrodes.
Factors to imagine when selecting a Stick Welder:
What type of metal are you working on?
A. Stick or SMAW welding is designed to perform on applications involving mild steel, stainless steel, cast iron and nickel alloy base materials.
B. The process also performs well when base material is dirty or rusty, plus in windy environments.
What type of power supply do I have?
A. Generally, stick welders delivering fewer than 100 amps output can be run on standard residential, shop, farm or generator power.
B. The Forney 95FI-A has a 120 VAC / 20 A, 60Hz input power requirement.
What type of sticks or filler metal will I need?
A. The Forney 95FI-A will run the most common welding electrodes up to 5/64” (1.98mm) diameter and those requiring up to 90 amps output power.
What is Arc, Stick or SMAW Welding?
Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), manual metal arc (MMA) or Stick welding is a process which melts and joins metals by heating them with an arc between a coated metal electrode and the work piece. The electrode outer coating, called flux, assists in creating the arc and provides the shielding gas and slag covering to offer protection to the weld from contamination. The electrode core provides a number of the weld filler metal.
Important: Process Performance Considerations
The Stick/SMAW welding process is not recommended for metals thinner than 16 gauge. The Stick/SMAW welding process requires slag removal and spatter clean up. The Stick/SMAW welding process requires a moderate skilled welder; make sure to practice your welds before moving to your work piece. Porosity is conceivable in the Stick/SMAW welding process. Stick /SMAW weld appearance Generally is not for show. The Forney 95FI-A requires a 20 Amp dedicated circuit. The Forney 95FI-A cannot weld Aluminum. (The Aluminum rod requires a DC power source. )
