    It has it's place. Works better in wind than gas shield (MIG, TIG). For occasional use you don't need to keep a tank of gas around.

    While I'm not overly fond of the gasless flux core wire, but just like jdurand said it has its uses the thing you have to remember about it is it welds like a combination of 6011& 6013 once you learn to rock your stinger directing arc while keeping the electrode in the puddle it will yield decently strong welds.
    for most of my welding I use flux core but not the gasless type I used a duel shield cored wire with CO2 mostly because much of my welding is on heavier mterials requiring deeper penetration and larger beads.
    But I have 1 machine set up with solid wire with 75/25 shielding gas and 1 set up with the gasless wire There are times when the gasless makes more sense than stick welding
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Today's pit video. Some turbulence made the flight interesting, please fasten your seat belts.

    I hate to say it, but I hear a jack hammer next door. They must be redecorating the basement.

    Today there was lots of hammering and singing. I see they added wood around the engine hoist. For as big a beam as that is, it surely isn't well supported.

    Ahhhhh yes; flat roofs and parapets. Bane of owning commercially intended construction.
    And why old roof was fully cut off, trussed in 4:1 pitch, and 50 year composition shingles.

    Today's pictures of the engine hoisty thing. They added a "hardy panel" next to it. Still no idea what they're doing.
