When you say it is not adjustable are you saying it wont work or that it is preset? Remember you need to turn on the gas, and turn the knob clockwise and the gas pressure should increase. Also try pulling on the guns trigger to get the gas flowing when you try and adjust the pressure. I hope this helps a little...

No this will not do that, however you can spot weld just by pulling the trigger for about a full second. This is a common type of weld to hold the pieces together before the welding begins. Check YouTube for ideas as to what we are talking about.

Any cheaper machines usually get hot faster. This one is fair if you stop and take a second or two in between welds and use a heavier electrical cord if needed.

Good question, it's both. A metal core that the wire runs through and a heavy rubber coating. The cable is nice but the trigger is plastic and more on the cheaper side and could not take a lot of abuse.
