I'm a new member and not much of a welder, but learning a lot from this forum and practice. I recently purchased a Hobart 140 wire feed. I'm in the process of fabricating some dry hole markers for some shallow wells that we are plugging. The markers are constructed of 51/2' of 41/2" well casing. The problem is welding the letters and numbers on the casing (lease name, well name, etc.). I am laying out the letters/numbers with soapstone (1"x 1"). Once I start the arc process I loose the outline of the soapstone and end with something that looks like a 1st grader. I have my Harbor Freight hood screwed down to 9-10. Any help would be appreciated.
