Good but could be better. This app dose not always give you options what if all I have is 1/8" tungsten and the app tells me to use 5/32" I get it that the way it should be done but not allowing me to pick wah I have won't help me. And no flow rate? that's pretty useful information. I'll keep the app because I know it will get better over time.
My Lincoln Electric 180C (and many other models) use letters and numbers for voltage and wire feed speed. This app gives volts and ipm settings. I don't know if there's an independent chart that I can use to match up the settings. This app only shows two wire sizes (.035 & .045). I think the chart that came with my welder is more convenient and probably more accurate.
It's good but not accurate (I use a Lincoln Powerwave C300 at work) so it'd be nice to have pulse and frequency settings but It's good for getting an aproximate setting but is way too high to run with. For example 12g aluminum will burn through at 580in/min 19v 3/64 wire. More like 300-325 @ 20v. Otherwise good app.
Great, but...needs to add different positions. As a student, this is a wonderful little tool. It gives me the general idea of what settings I need to be using. I can generally figure out the other settings for vertical and overhead, but it would be great to have the settings for the other positions. Especially if you don't know if you're welding within the AWS code. Also, an extra star for not having to carry that massive consumable for around everywhere.
More things should be added This is a good app, I'm glad theres a android version. Some things should be added to the app like cfh flow rate for wire welding gases, welding positions for plate and pipe, more metal thicknesses past 1/2", type of weld like stringer, weave, fliilet & groove weld, all types of joints including open root & backing strip, bead sequence, bevel angles & root openings, gun, tig torch, and rod angles, electrode stickouts and arc lengths, travel directions like push, pull, drag, uphill, downhill, & travel speed.
Make compatible with more devices please! Seems like a great app the only problem is I can only use it on my tablet and not any of the 3 android phones I have tried. It says not compatible. I would love to have easy access to this on my phone. I can't see me carrying my tablet to the job site!
