        I was using the MM251 and I can't remember the specific settings probably around 26v and 600ws

        Naw, the plate was previously painted so I had to grind all that off. Thanks.

          To me it looks like what a lot of people want their tig to look like..............
          Did you start and stop to get that look? What I mean is, is each weld single and the next just overlap?

            No, it's a continuous weld. You're talking about layered tacks and that's fine for some thin sheet but not for this 3/4" plate. This is how I weld at work on most stuff because I can always tell what I've done compared to everyone else cause no one else at our shop can run a bead like that, just as good as a signature

              seems most good true welders can recognize there own work. like you said it becomes similer to a signiture. once you work out how you like to time your movements and dip's or feed in MIG's case you tend to repeat the same as it becomes your routeen. i suspect thats realy the only way to get a good consistant bead time after time.
              looks great, wish i could get mine so nice.

                I don't see how to do that in a steady weld............but it really looks great!
                But, is the weld as good as it looks? I'm in HVAC and have been since 1971. I can't tell which joints I have done but I can sure tell you the ones I haven't.

                  I think it looks nice but I generally won't let people who work for me get away with a bead done that way. Just spaced a little to far out for my taste and sorta doubt it would get you hired on any critical welding job. I'm sure it's a good hot weld and all that just way to much variance in the width and certainly not taught in any school that way that I remember. Too much distance between your jumps. I bet you actually use less filler. Tighten it up to about half that much and maybe it would look a little more believable.
                  Personally I would need to see some destructive test results before I would put my signature (or reputation) on it.
                  And if I am wrong.... then sorry. .... just definetly not how I was taught.

                    Sorry guys but I've got to agree with FusionKing on this one, close them jumps up a little. Dave

                      Everyone has their opinions. In the 10 years I've been welding I've never had anything break, and I've welded some big sh!t.

                        Littlefuzz,

                        I thought I remembered you from another site, then once I saw the closeups of your welds I knew I had. I saw the pictures of a custom rear bumper you put on a customers pickup a red Ford if I remember correctly. I believe you explained your weld as being done in a circular motion. It definately shows consistency and control on your part, it's just not my thing - I was trained differently. My GTAW and GMAW deposits are much tighter than that. My concern with your weld deposits being spaced so far apart it that you are in effect having stop/starts tied together in a chain. No offense intended to how you weld.

                        Later,
                        Later,

                          no offense meant

                          Like the other guys I was just taught a different way than that of yours, everyone has there own way of doing things. Is your way any better or worse than ours, I can't say one way or the other for sure. Dave

                            Yup that's me. Oh, that bumper has had a hay spear mounted into the receiver and hauled a bunch of those 5 x 6 round bales without budging.
