    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.
    thanks for the help

    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
