Do you have a chart for recommended settings for different steel thicknesses, i.e what should I set the synergic control to for 3mm mild steel using 0.8 solid core wire.

no chart just let viper do the job

No I don’t, I put up to 3/4 strength power for 5-6mm plate and down to about 1/4 power for 2mm. As Wayne said, just let the viper do the job. Every mig welder needs adjustment for metal thickness until you get to know your welder and what settings are best, a chart is only a guide.

Absolutely...

The safe maximum length is 'Absolutely..'. Does this mean that you can use an extension lead of infinite length?

Lindsayasked

Regarding UNIMIG VIPER 120 SYNERGIC MIG KUMJRVM120, while at one point in your advertising you mention stainless steel wire, in other places you mention suitable material as "mild steel". Before I commit to purchasing this welder, I need to be certain that it can satisfactorily handle 316 stainless wire, with gas, of course.

Hi Lindsay, I can confirm that the VIPER 120 can run Stainless Steel wire.

Will this welder be able to weld together railings for a stock crate? and will the welds be strong enough to hold cattle?

Hi mate, how thick is the material you will be working with?

Wharfie
Wharfie

The welder is good for 4mm steel, which should be sufficient for a stock crate. Whether the welds will be strong enough is down to the person using the welder and not the welder itself.

Hi Steve, not that machine mate it’s designed for steel only. For aluminium I would recommend our Viper 185 https://unimig.com.au/product/viper-185-mig-tig-stick-welder/

Just wanting to know if there's a 0.6mm gasless wire for these little migs
I can only find it in the 0.8 and 0.9mm wire in 1kg spools
Wanting it for panel work on my dodge truck
Not wanting to use gas as its an extra cost plus doesn't come with a regulator

Hi Darren, unfortunately, 0.6mm Gasless wire is unavailable from us. Mild Steel would be the one to go if you are looking for 0.6mm.
