    Changing the frequency and arc profile to tailor the bead characteristics in different areas of the combustion chamber is a neat trick...

          I've had this machine about a year there was a big learning curve but the more I use it the easier it is to use.I have also done some aluminum engine block repairs for the same shop I did the head for,repairing holes in the blocks and main journal and web repairs.I also fabricate axles and other componets for sprint cars,all chromoly using Weld-mold 880 welds come out real nice.

            Those miller YouTube videos with Andy crack me up. In that particular one the miller jacket is obviously fresh out of the wrapper and wrinkled, cups are brand new, and I love how Andy uses the full brand name of something he is talking about, every time he mentions it

            Too forced. Who ever is in directing there marketing videos needs to learn how to loosen up.

                Not arguing that. Just saying they could be a bit more natural.

                And while it is pertinent, I wish they would give more insight with regard to settings - some of the videos miller offers seem to be more just product advertisement than good how-to suggestions and places to start for newer welders.

                        You rang? Why, thank you kind sir.

                        And now from a newbie perspective: did anyone else notice that the filler rod is not fully kept under the argon coverage (both on the cylinder head & block repair)? Also, he dab'd way too early on the engine block before it puddled, which is why the filler rod blob'd up, and they he proceeds to yank it completely away from the argon coverage, to whip away the partially melted blob from the end of the filler rod. Way to go!

                            smarty-pants don't need to be called on, they know they're smarty-pants!

                            I think I also saw some "dimes" that didn't wet-out completely and "lumped up" just a tad. Anyone else see what I'm seeing? Man it must be serious pressure to weld on a CNC'd billet block like that. That thing must be mucho dinero $$$$$$ !!! Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the whole thing was a success, it's just that some of those actions seem to go against "standard protocol".

                              I hate to say it - but I expected the welds to be much nicer considering the technology difference between that machine and my '63 Airco.
