Brandon, first I subed. I just bought a mig welder and did my first ugly weld :) Your approach to teaching basic skills is so appreciated I feel like sggesting that you make it a part of your channel to regularly teach skills, lingo, settings, etc...I've got a million questions as i'm sure many of us beginners do ! I am certain you could also reach many who hesitate to buy a welder but dream of making sparks in their garage. Good luck with the channel and thank you.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)

I really like the way you show everything, except that you don't show or really talk about penetration. It isn't just you, seems most on YouTube skip that part. I've read on welding sites that the problem with Mig welding is you can have a pretty bead, but it doesn't penetrate and will fail. So I would think it should be something mentioned. IMHO anyway. I'm just a rank beginner, so take my thoughts for what they are worth. :-)
Brandon Lund (1 month ago)
I agree Russell. I should probably incorporate a cut and etch into a few videos. Thanks for the suggestion!

Andy B (2 months ago)
Great vid thanks. Do you need to wipe the excess jelly stuff off from inside the nozzle when you weld next time?
Andy B (2 months ago)
Brandon Lund cool thanks mate 👍
Brandon Lund (2 months ago)
If you dip it right after your done welding it will deposit the right amount of gel. If you wait until the nozzle cools down it will usually fill the nozzle. In that case just pop the nozzle off and use a rag to push out the excess gel. As long as you have a light coating your all set.
Lee Howell (2 months ago)
I welded aluminum for many years and he is not using the tip properly. When you are using a gas shield, you do not pull the weld like you do with stick, you push the weld to keep the shield around the puddle.
Brandon Lund (2 months ago)
Lee Howell that makes 2 times that you are now wrong! You clearly have a massive chip on your shoulder. Stop name calling and do the research I told you about. There is no way you went to school for welding or even worked 14 years in the field as you say and not know this rudimentary information. This is welder helper level knowledge. Stop trying to prove you are something you are not.
Lee Howell (2 months ago)
+Brandon Lund seeing that you are self taught I realise that you know more than someone who made a living welding. no need to reply, I am done with you.
Lee Howell (2 months ago)
+Brandon Lund I don't know where you got your info, but I welded aluminum with ARGON for 14 years and went to a welding school so stuff it, I know what I am talking about and YOU are wrong period. we were not talking about flux core, read the post before you shoot off. you just peed me off.
Brandon Lund (2 months ago)
Lee Howell, im sorry but you are incorrect about this. You can do either with solid wire.

acwren (3 months ago)
Clearest presentation yet. Thanks for the information on the axes orientation of the tip. The technique shown of moving the tip side to side while maintaining the correct angles gives me a template for practice. I am assuming that the same technique holds for using a flux welder set up Ace.
Brandon Lund (3 months ago)
Thanks acwren! I appreciate your support and the same technique works for Flux Core also :)

craig jones (3 months ago)
Thanks man. Great series
Brandon Lund (3 months ago)
+craig jones it's all good. We all started at the beginning. My best advise, get to the scrap yard and pick up some scrap metal and just start by welding strait beads on flat plate. Experiment with travel speed and get the feel for it. Get into a comfortable position and play around with it. You will be up and running in no time. Congratulations on the new machine! Enjoy!

Please explain nozzle jelly never heard of it ?? What does it do
G Hobo (3 months ago)
Brandon Lund oh ok ima try it out thanks btw I love your videos it helped me a lot
Brandon Lund (3 months ago)
You dip the end of the mig gun in the gel and it helps prevent welding spatter from fouling up the nozzle. Same idea as spraying a pan before cooking eggs. It keeps things from sticking and makes cleanup quicker also.

alot of good information here for beginners. only thing I'd change is using a tap mig rather than a unit with infinite adjustability. for new guys learning it'd be helpful to teach them about voltage, wirespeed, and the relationship between the two.
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
Thank you Chuck for your support and kind words! I will see what I can do! :)
Brian Walker (4 months ago)
G, day mate, have just subscribed to you’re channel. I liked you’re simple and straight forward explanation on how to start Mig welding for beginners, top job. I took up welding in 1970 as a hobby and still love welding to this day. I help out teaching newcomers to welding for free and really enjoy doing it. I have completed numerous welding courses at Technical Colleges over the years to get my qualifications. I’m also a qualified Fitter & Turner and also teach, for free to newcomers the basics of that trade as well. You’re approach of teaching is very similar to mine....simple and to the point. Keep up the good work, l look forward to watching more of you’re video’s, as l am not too old to keep learning from others, like yourself. Nobody knows everything. Brian from “down under”...Australia. Hooroo matey...
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
Thanks Brian for the kind words and comment! I appreciate your support! It's a great feeling volunteering to help others. Keep up the good work! Thank you for the sub! Cheers!

Charles Gruen (5 months ago)
Brandon, I am new to welding. I am having a terrible time trying to see the joint i am trying to weld. I purchased a Lincoln 1840 Series auto darkening helmet and have tried setting it from the darkest to the lightest setting and still find it almost impossible to see where the bead is being applied. Can you or anyone, PLEASE help me.
Mark Davies (2 months ago)
Charles, Add some really Bright Floodlights close to the spot you are welding. I realize there is a lot of light when the mig trigger is pulled but it really helps at other times. ie seeing when there is no arc and see farther away from the arc
Henry Shaw (3 months ago)

Dogma Gannaway (5 months ago)
pushing your weld has more penatrating power then dragging your weld
Brandon Lund (5 months ago)
I would have to agree
Danny Nasiff (5 months ago)

Are you using .030 flux core wire? It sounds like a drive roll / tension issue.
Aristotelis Beligiannis (6 months ago)
Hello. Is it o.k. for people, who have undergone a coronary operation and have now got a stent installed, to operate a welder?
Brandon Lund (6 months ago)
Aristotelis Beligiannis I don’t see any reason why you couldn’t but before doing so you should probably ask the doctor just to be safe.
James Fontaine (6 months ago)
Very well done. I just upgraded to this welder from a cheap flux core only machine. I started a project using 1/8 " material and played with the settings. I am running the same set up you are demonstrating with. I was surprised that the welds seemed fairly good over a range of settings. I settled on settings with the wire speed a bit below the chart recommendations. I was wondering if you have found the recommended settings to be generally fairly accurate for the Hobart 140 ? Thanks.
James Fontaine (6 months ago)
Thanks Brandon+Brandon Lund
Brandon Lund (6 months ago)
Congratulations on upgrading your welder! You will be very happy with it. It's a solid machine and I have had zero issues with it. As far as the chart goes, I think it's very close but I have a tendency to go the other way on my settings when I'm welding. Not just this machine, but most of my machines I find myself welding a little hotter than whats recommended. I probably compensate for the hotter setting with a quicker travel speed...which is why I usually end up having to clean up a bunch of spatter at the end of the project😂 . Thanks for watching James and Congratulations! 👍

Brandon Lund (6 months ago)
shogunMR In my younger years I have brazed in countless floor pans using a torch and brazing rod. I even did a 1970 c-10 chop top with torch brazing. My preference now is mig with c-25 gas. You can do it with flux core but it’s more difficult in my opinion. Thanks for your support brother, I appreciate it!

sydney chamberlain (8 months ago)
only open half way it makes easier to close it and you wont get more gas flow from opening valve further than half way. this is handy if there is a fire and using flammable gas.
MAC VENA (7 months ago)
That's for acetylene. Just a half turn or so. Argon and Co2 aren't going to cause fire. They typically are opened up.

Brandon Lund (8 months ago)
Thanks for your support!
its okay for beginners but i would say that to clean the metal befor welding is everytime very good. i explain that with a example: "if you want to drink beer with your mates you want to have a clean or nice place to meet&drink. but in this case is that you be the welding wire/rod/electrode and the other metal pieces are your mates. if you have the right settings for welding (gas, amperge, voltage, AC-DC for tig, clean metal basis,....) the pieces (your friends) stay/hold much longer together (and drink beer)!!!" the result is that you have a very good welding time! :D
Brandon Lund (9 months ago)
Right on brother! I'll drink to that!
Daniel Balfour (9 months ago)
You should always purge the gas from your gun after you've closed your bottles when you're done welding for the day. With the welder still powered up, hit the trigger a couple of times and watch the pressure on the gauges drop.
Brandon Lund (9 months ago)
Daniel Balfour good call brother! Something I do but take for granted. :)

Lee Howell (2 months ago)
I am sure that you did not drive a car well when you first started driving. Keep trying, you will get better and It is really a useful skill.
Brandon Lund (9 months ago)
Noel Henriquez just keep practicing and in a short time you will get better. Are you using flux core or mig? If you do not have your polarity right at the welder it will cause for bad weld also. You want DCEN when using flux core, DCEP when using gas

Peter Cunningham (9 months ago)
Thanks for a very informative video. I have just recently bought myself a new MIG welder. I have not had a chance to use it yet as I had to get an electrician to put in an 15 Amp power point for the welder. My old one which I burnt out was only a 10Amp unit but when used at the end of a long extension lead overheated, but it was good practice but it has been so long since I used a welder, I will have to learn all over again, so your videos will be very helpful. I especially liked the way you demonstrated the sound of going too fast or too slow. regards from Rural New South Wales,Australia.

Dev Everything (11 months ago)
Thank you for making this video, I will be attempting my first mig very soon. What the heck is nozzle jelly?
Brandon Lund (11 months ago)
Dev Everything Nozzel Gel is a jelly type substance that lubricates the end of your mig gun so that spatter doesn't stick to it. When I finish welding, I dunk the end of the gun in the gel and it's ready to go for next time. It's much more necessary when using flux core but I use it every time when I'm done because it makes cleanup easier.

Manipulate the mig gun with a little weave motion. It will help the bead lay in there better

Run about 30. More gas will help make better welds once you get use to it

But you did tho....😂😂😂
Brandon Lund I have watched a lot of welding videos here on YouTube and I just want to say how refreshing it actually is to watch a video that's not a sell out. Either by trying to shell out products like say a random statement that I've NEVER Heard before like " THIS IS A INVERARC 200TLP from our friends at HTP America" Can't remember where I've heard it before but I'm sure it's also about plasma cutters and so on. Also not begging for patreon donations. I have subscribed liked and shared it because it is a video that's been created and posted for the benefit of the viewers not your pocket. Don't get me wrong now. I have absolutely no issue with people making money off of YouTube videos or patreon not at all But I do have an issue with people who use every means possible to get money. Like doing shell videos with clock bait titles then ask you to become a patreon and then try to sell you things while asking you to like share rate and subscribe. I will link your video on my channel as a video for people to watch in order to learn from. Hence the name of my channel
Brandon Lund Not a problem mate. Credit where credits due. I believe 100% that it you find a product that is the same as a million others but this is the best of the bunch then sponsored or not if you honestly do believe that then by all means sell away as it is of great benefit to your viewers and if you get a free tool of a bit of coin out of it then so be it as that would be an added extra for you. Not a reason for saying it. But love your channel and your vids mate. Keep up the good work Cheers Pat
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Can You Learn this from YouTube Thank you very much for your great comment! I have been known from time to time to endorse a product or whatever but it's only because I truly believe in it and I don't want my viewers wasting their money on stuff they might not need. It's funny you mention the comment about the invertig and I know what your saying. My viewers want educational content, not an infomercial disguised as a build video. I will do my best to see thats what my viewers get. Thanks for the kind words and trust this channel will always keep it real!

Did I hear you say $80 for a bottle? Wow.. I fill mine (75/25 Argon/CO2) for $33.. (Western NC) Same size bottle as you have.. I weld pretty much the same as you.. Usually drag, but, will push in a second if it is a better setup for the weld.. Whatever feels better.. Downhill/uphill, kind of depends on what I am welding and what amps the machine is set at.. If it is welding a little hot, I weld uphill, a little on the cool side, I weld downhill, which I prefer.. I rarely move my settings if I can weld a little faster or slower. I usually don't change settings unless I change thicknesses of metal or have to weld a different type of joint (wider or more narrow).. If it is not hot enough, and should be for what you are welding, always check the ground first.. I find the ground can affect just as much or more, if it is a poor ground. I always say.. Practice penetration and fusing first, then, practice doing the same while stacking the beads... I can usually teach someone to weld in an afternoon.. Start with the stick, and when they get penetration down, and get started making some decent beads, I move them to the Mig if that is what they want to buy, and let them practice the rest of the afternoon.. Mig makes everything so easy,, but, everyone should start with Stick to get the real feel of welding.. If you can stick, you can surely mig but not the reverse without some time spent practicing.. It's just one less movement (following the shortening of the rod), which was always the source of less than "proud beads".. Keep up the videos.. Lots of people are looking for beginner vids, because, not everyone gets a chance to go to school or have a mentor to look over their shoulder and figure out how to do it, but, see some simple videos and see what they have been missing. Not enough of the beginner vids.. Heck.. I watched these videos and I have been welding professionally for myself for years..Ha.. Now,, if I could just find someone who went through Machinist school and could do about 20 or 30 videos on the "Fundamentals" of machine work.. I am already using the lathe and mill, and doing what needs to be done, but, seems I am constantly picking up things that are fundamentals that I missed, because they were not necessary to know at the time, but, helps in the overall mix of things.. Half of the videos about building your own tools to make your work more accurate and easier.. Love your wood/metal builds.. One day, I am going to take the time to outfit my living room with that type of furniture, and then to the bedroom, and finally the kitchen/dining room.. I want to build a set of comfortable chairs that will stack in a corner when not in use.. Probably square or rectangular tubing.. Probably go with a new table for the chairs... Nothing wrong with the one that I have, except, I didn't build it.. Ha.. Cheers Brandon..

Same here.. Love learning and trying new things.. I did the same, but Stuck with 6011's.. I use 6013's if I weld something thin and don't want much penetration or don't want to fight the blow through holes. I always found it hard to Re-Start 7018's, but are nice rods for chipping the flux, same as the 6013's. But, if I feel extra strength is needed, I will use the 7018's, if I have some fresh.. I refaced an old anvil with a 4140 piece of tool steel, and used the 7018's to fill the deep V grooves and fill them to the surface before grinding them down. It was going to be subject to a lot of beating, so, 7018 was the first choice. I agree though.. Stacked beads with the 6011 take some finesse.. Somehow, you never have enough tools..Ha.. Love my Plasma, but, use the Acetylene on thick stuff and for Preheating, etc.. Love the Abrasive Chop saw, but, now, only use it for tool steel, and love the new Evolution Rage 2 Chop Saw (with saw blade) even more (but need to wear muffs to protect the ears, but, still use the band saw and 4.5" cut off wheels on the Angle grinder.. I took up Blacksmithing and opened up a whole new realm of building with metal.. Then, bought a used mini lathe and mill and now can't imagine too many projects I could not put together.. Just need more hours in a day..Ha.. Cheers. Thought you might like this.. One of my most difficult and demanding projects.. My Redneck Refrigerator Tool Box.. Never dreamed how flimsy a refrigerator would get when you pull everything out of it, including the foam.. Then, had to put drawers and drawer slides in it.. And, you probably know how finiky those are. But, worked out great. Been using it for years.. Wish I would have spent more on the drawer slides.. Bought more of an industrial type slide for the weight.. 24" wide drawers can get heavy when you start stuffing them.. But, can't hardly argue with the price.. Everything except the drawer slides I had on hand or was scrap.. Ha.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4gZgxrHdQ8 Later.. Want to figure out why one of my videos that has been sitting there for 2 years is getting a large number of comments for some reason and getting lots of hits today. Strange.. On Gun Control for some reason.. Not sure why now, after 2 years, is getting all of the action.. Here it is. It was a repost of a video I found, got deleted off of youtube and found it again.. https://youtu.be/Yuf_hOVFzFU Back to work for me.. Thanks for the reply..

$33.00 is an awesome deal for a bottle that size! I agree with starting with stick first. That's how I started and I think everything after that just comes easier. I learned on 6011. Burned pounds of it then eventually started running 6013 and 7018. It was a whole new experience. I was amazed how easy it was to stack dimes as compared to 6011. Thanks for the compliment buddy and I am always learning also. It's what keeps this hobby so much fun :)

how does that mask fit under your shield I just got eht miller mask for under the shield and it is very tight.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Joe, it fits perfect under my hood. It is very low profile.
D Rickard (1 year ago)
The clean jacket is killing me...lol I know you didn't get yours from sponsors but always kills me when these guys show up with all new Miller blues or Lincoln reds and they're crisp and spotless. I'd be rubbing dirty metal all over them to at least make them look like they had been used a time or two.

Never mind the jacket haha..you can tell a rookie from how close he's sticking his hood in the work piece haha I remember when I started I could feel the beads heat on my neck hahahaha now I'm 3 foot away
Brandon Lund (10 months ago)
Hahaha Been there done that! :) welding in sneakers is fun too when the molten slag melts into the top and ends up trapped in your shoe...Good Times! :)

he could have at least put a few burn marks at the inner arm elbow area. you know, the really painful spot! :-)
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
D Rickard Hahaha you made me chuckle! This just brought me back to the days when we would be told that a "seasoned" guy was going to showing up on Monday to help out. The guy rolls in with all new shiny gear and everyone's like "here we go again, another idiot with no experience" lol. Your comment about my shiny new jacket just made me "that guy"! Take care brother and thanks for laugh :)

Привет Brandon от OGAREW ;) Что за смазка голубая ? Мой лайк и помощь ! P.S. это мой 1-ый, старенькый канал для себя :)
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
That looks like fun!
Brandon Lund Я 3 года участвовал в соревнованиях. https://youtu.be/uM4kqN-nsUM
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Я проверил канал youtube и увидел транспортные средства и тот, какой смотрелся будто ваш аватар, и поразмыслил, что вы 4-х колесные товарищи либо друзья. Я получаю это на данный момент! Забавно!
Brandon Lund OGAREW - is me! This is the second channel. Look at the car and the inscriptions, on the avatar.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Я лишь что проверил ваш канал и подписался! Я собираюсь проверить это сейчас вечерком! Поэтому я вижу, что вам нравится носиться. Я тоже. Я ужасен. Я весьма неспешный. Я ушел потом операции на колене, однако я опять в бегах. Поскольку я этак медлительно, мне нравится кидать вызов моему разуму. Вы упомянули OGAREW по одному из собственных сообщений. Он друг?

Good stuff, other things-if you have wire feed probs, check your ground(earth) is good as well as w/f setting-MIG needs a good ground, cleaning off the workpieces also helps and can reduce spatter. Pulling or dragging with gas MIG generally increases penetration, I find that is true, so I drag on thicker materials.Shield with a grinding is handy -switch on the outside of the shield is handiest.On safety, I prefer to wear all leather gloves for welding and grinding, and no livestock in the shop- I think you had a goose under the bench at the start of the video?, oe mebbe it was ole Foghorn Leghorn.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Jaques Daniels That's an excellent point that I completely forgot to mention. Thank you for mentioning that! That squeak was crazy! I had to back and listen. I think it was an owl lol
Bo Haggin (1 year ago)
Brandon, have you ever tried dropping your gas pressure? I went from 15-20 down to 8-10 with no effect in my welds. Save gas! Nice video
John Sanders (6 months ago)
Why does your gas pressure drop. If I set my regulator on 10 it should stay there. Also turning your bottles on wide open is a bad habit to start. Once your pressure shows on your regulator there is no reason to go any higher
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Rick Ramirez this might make for an interesting video...
Rick Ramirez (1 year ago)
Have you ever done a cut and etch with the gas that low?
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Bo Haggin So is that the cfh with the trigger pulled? I'm going to give it a try. If so, I'm going to double my usage. Thanks for the tip brother!
Jaques Daniels (1 year ago)
Very true sir, I did that and was amazed how long my current bottle is lasting.
