    Bert,

    Hey, I'm just a beginner who's still trying to find a grip to hold the stinger a little steadier. Besides, you're the one who told me to watch those manufacturer's reps if I wanted to get better. So if jwsrep showed James a new grip, then I should want to see it too, right?

    JWS,

    Sorry, but if you've been following Bert's story, you know he'll still be busy painting his dad's house in February

    James,

    Wow. That much improvement in just 2 sessions. Man, I really gotta start putting in more hours of practice time

    Talking

    i'll help paint the house if he pays for the plain ticket.

    thanks jonnymag, i'm really pleased with my progress so far. i think its really about figuring out a good way to hold the stick and then how much filler comes off it. its surprisingly slow IMO. so i had to slow down a bunch to let it fill in the hole it burns when it first moves. its like move burn a hole fill it in then move. burn a hole and fill it in and move again. it goes much slower than i always thought it would. seeing it done right really helped. i would have just been burning holes for ever if i had not had jwsrep help to see you need to wait and fill them. i kept trying to go faster to keep from burning holes but really i needed to go slower so i could fill them back up again.
    thanks for the help

    Default re fun 4 now

    you dont have to clean the slag every rod,if your quick enough changing rods you can burn into your tie in nicely without any inclusions etc(trust me on this and try it out for yourself)itll save you alot of time when you need it.

    Looking very nice for no longer than you have been at it. I've known so-called pros that weren't that good. Of course all they did was chase drilling rigs.

    Cut your upward travel by about half and it should smooth it out quite a bit. It will take some experimenting, but you will get it. Truth is I am not as smooth as I used to be. My eyes are shot.

    I will have to get someone to take a pic of my uphill grip. It is a little different and involves bending the rod, but it works really good for me. I don't have near the normal range of motion in my wrist so I have to compensate

    cool, always good to try new options.
    getting some one else to take the pic is a good idea, it was harder than i thought to take a pic of my own hand. although the welding gloves probably didn't help the situation.
    how about a few pic's of your welds wile you are at it.

    i was thinking stick welding was kinds slow, even considering my lack of experience. i also thought the time used to clean allowed the metal to cool a bit. seemed like by the time i got to the 3rd stick i had to turn down the amps a bit. am i messing up or should i just hold longer to fill more as it heats up and cuts in deeper??
