    Turn it down a little. You don't need that much heat for the first pass as you are just welding thin points of metal together...Bob

        try using a little more stick out when things get too hot, practice on stick out results, alot of welders keep the same stick out all of the time, moving in and out, along as its within the parameters is fine
