Just found this place not too long ago. Right now, I'm taking a college level welding course. I've managed to stick a few pieces of metal together, but my welds look terrible. Bluntly put, I'm struggling to keep up with the kids with the hands on. Flat square groove and verticle up laps are really giving me problems. The instructor wants 3/16"coupon welded with 6010 rod, 75 amps, verticle up done, DCEP. After 2 hours of practice, I'm still not there. Any suggestions out there other than stay with housebuilding. I want to get good enough to fab my own implements and repair ag type machines, but at this rate I'm better off having friends do the welding. I have the opportunity on Sundays to go to the school and practice to my hearts content. Thats what I'm doing tommorow.
One thing I really did suceed at was welding flat laps with a 7024 . I guess I could always rotate my workpiece so I could always weld like that!!!!!!
