Re: dialing in your welder feed rate setting
Good advice fellas! The guys I work with at the machine shop didn't realize how much they used sound to help them do their work until I rolled in there years ago. I'm not able to hear the welder or most of the noise the lathes and milling machines make while I'm "moving" metal. Usually if I can hear it, it's time to change travel or chuck speeds. I have to rely on sight and feel for the most part and always welcome input from the hearing machinists in the shop. But, as these guys said "practice, practice, practice".
