I use 0.8 as I mentioned earlier in the thread ... I guess I have to face the fact that I'm so terrible at welding that I dont realise I'm having problems
Its probably down to having taught myself to weld using the same SIP welder, if I'd been properly taught with a proper welding set then I would probably be having lots of problems with my SIP just like everyone else.
" Top tip for any Scots out there " - thanks LA! Seriously - does the inside of a net curtain thing really work ? We don't have any (thankfully) - but they must surely still be available somewhere. As for the re-reeling - I have an 8mm film editing device somehwere which winds from reel to reel - so I guess I would use that! But I do plan to invest in a small reel of 0.8mm wire to try that first.
Yes, the net curtain twangy bit does work, it was a bit of lateral thinking on the part of a lady (gasp) on the aforementioned welding forum. She noticed the similarity between the super expensive steel liners and the twangy stuff while she was doing some girly stuff with the nets!
Available from any hardware/curtain shop at around £2 for a 2m length (that is how much my SIP needed). Far, far less drag than the plastic liner on that horrid little feed motor.
