    Default First Day of welding school. Pics.

    Well, welding school was fun. Here are a few of my first beads. The pictures are of 3 passes. Let me know what you think. I already know of some ways to correct the welds. The machine had some old wire in it, it was causing a few problems. I had the wire get stuck in the lining, and the gun jumping a few times, so keep that in mind...

    The first picture is Vertical, and the rest are fillet welds.

    You call those welds? I think I can get better results by letting my dog take a crap on some plywood. You should be ashamed.
