I am new to mig welding. I just bought a Clarke Gas/No gas 130 amp mig and I am trying to get some technique down before I go welding panels on my car. I can't seem to get the settings (wire speed/power) right. I keep blowing through the metal and I can't get a bead going. Just wondering if anyone knows the settings I should use. Thanks

What wire do you have in it?

I have that same welder. I have 30 wire and set the power on 2 and the speed just over 2 works best for me on smaller stuff like that.
