    Default MIG Beads Critique

    Ok as much as this may shatter my confidence of being a compitent welder as well as bruise my fragile ego, tell me what ya think. Never gonna get better at something unless somebody shreads up your work once in a while. Let it rip fellas!

    Welds with a MM180 75/25 at 20 mild steel .12 wall 2x2 square tube can't remember off the top of my head what the settings were, but they would have been set of the chart with the feed rate towards the lower end.

    Thanks in advance for the critique's

    Didn't know how to, well that and I figured it would be easier for your old eyes to see the bead.

    SinGear,

    Welds don't look bad at all. Another 900 or so and you'll be ready for the mig cart everyone wants to build. Just kidding. Good job.

    Like the sense of humor.

    Got any extra decoder rings laying around? (I could use one to figure out what some posters are asking)

    Default Weld quality

    The only real way to check your weld penetration, is to cut it. Appearance looks good, but didn't see much undercut.
