Can anyone give me some advice on how to do vertical butt welds?
At school I'm running 1/4" plate, 1/4" apart with no bevel and am required to fill the gap in one pass.
I have been using a MM200 on low range, tap 4, WS of about 28. I switched to tap 3 and lowered the WS to 22 and that seemed to allow me more "hang time" to fill the gap...but at the expense of penetration.
I know it's an art...but my instructor is not helping me dial in on this. He's a nice guy but we're not connecting for some reason. I could sure use some guideance.
