      Make sure your amperage is set high enough for the 1/4". Sounds like you may be going a little too fast, did you try slowing down some? Remember you are using a much larger rod compared to what you used for the root bead, especially if you went from a 3/32" to a 1/4"

          • Tyler, I think its wonderful that you want to be self employed. I'm a little concerned that you don't know what kind of welder you need. If you are not going to be doing the work your 'lead-man' should have the knowledge as to the equiptment. If you don't know what welders to set-up then your welding shop rep. will be able to help. 1" plate is no joke, I do hope you succeed. Best of luck. DZSNUTS

                  • gotta buy this

                    if you only buy 1 welder, make sure its a miller, i own and operate many, some are 25 yrs old, they make quality stuff and stand behind there product, also factor in single or 3 phase
