Are magnets disturbing my arc?
Hi guys, girl welder in the house. I'm a hobby MIG welder doing large swings, gates, yard art, sculpture, etc.
Whenever I try using the big arrow-shaped magnets for set up, I seem to find my arc is disturbed and welds are very messy. Having never taken a class, just read books, I've never seen it addressed.
Is it my imagination or does the magnetic field interfere with the weld?
