    Default New to mig welding some opinion on some test pieces.

    Hi all as the title implies I would like some opinion on some test pieces I welded together using 1/8 inch steel. First off I would like to say I welded off and on for a few years but only flux core welding using my 115 volt Lincoln Electric Weld-Pak 100 HD. I found out quickly that mig welding for me is truly different (especially with 230v). Anyway I welded two pieces using my Millermatic 211 MVP I got about 2 weeks ago and would like some thoughts to improve.

    The settings I used was the factory suggesting setting under 230v for 1/8 steel of 65 (Wirespeed) 4.5 (Voltage). The piece to the right I tinkered with at 50 (Wirespeed) and 5 (Voltage).

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
