    Cool welding scrap

    what position are you welding in? The only negative thing i can say is to slow your travel speed down a little. try practicing running stringers on flat plate 6 inches by 8 inches. cover the plate and lets see what that looks like. focus on uniform width and highth. Let's see some 1g,2g,and 3g positions. I believe your welds would be acceptable to an inspector, but remember this is an art.
    Try to make every weld better than the last one. Also it doesn't hurt to use that grinder and weld clean steel.
