OK I read a post out here a while back and your ‘real’ welders gave some good pointers to this hobby welder about how to join two like pieces of metal at a T-joint. It was the one about Push vs. Pull when using a mig. (Just for those of you that will ask questions, in my case with gas.)
Say I am trying to weld sheet or expanded steel to a piece of angle. You know on a cart or a workbench. I can get it done but it is nothing I want anyone to see. I have big globs (Not hot enough, too much wire speed?) and/or burn thru (too hot?) all over the place.
So I guess what I want to know is any special fabrication instruction as well as changes to settings on the welder. (Simple welder 1 thru 10 on both heat and wire speed.)
Do I start my bead on the thick material and just move the puddle to the thin?
What is the proper spacing for tack welds?
