    I agree with you turbo .I also use a z-weave motion pausing at the sides.
    Depending on the thickness of the material consistutes how long I pause.
    Usually one -onethousand-two then move

      Hey guys, today I did it. Ran the best uphills ever. They looked beautiful and I was finally proud. 4" sq.tube 1/4"wall 1/8" 7018 and around 115 amps! I used the "Z" , did the counting but ended up making adjustments on speed by watching the crater on my side to side and waiting for it to fill before moving.

      Thanks to all. Took some advice, practice, and more heat... no prob!
