    hard to tell with the SP100 welds due to all the flux in on them still but some don't look so good. the other ones are looking like they all have craters in the center. thats causing a week spot that could cause a crack to start.
    i'm no expert but i would not call them good solid welds. any concaved bead profile is not good. you need the bead to add to the strength.
    looks more like a hot stitch weld than a continuous weld done with circles.
    but its your stuff so you get to make the call i guess.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com
    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    I was just screwing around with the 110, just trying to see if i could get the same look. I agree with you about the 110 welds cause I think some slag was getting in the welds trying to do it like that.

    Talking Whip it good

    Although I generally prefer to just run a straight stringer or weave bead, I will sometimes lay a "stack of dimes" just for fun. The best way I could describe the motion is to whip it like a 6010 with a slight circular motion. The trick is to watch how the puddle moves and cools. I find watching your weld from behind is far easier as long as you can still see where you are going.

    Looks cool, they are very straight and nice width, but I too have never done it that way. I'm going to try it
