I completely understand. I have been unemployed since the 1st of december. I have been picking up side work to stay busy. I'll be back into gainful employment in a week or so. Keep to it. Welding is a addiction. Have fun!

Same as before 1/8th flat stock, 035 wire, wire speed 55, voltage 5, 75/25 gas using my MM211.
Test piece 1,2,3,5 and 6 was done using the "U" motion
Test Piece 4 was using a circular motion and Test piece 7 is a left to right motion ( I would start forward (starting left) then back up. I would do this procedure until I reached the end.)
I have tried doing cursive "E's" with just no luck (it just look bad) but doing "U", "Circular" and "back and forth" seem to work out very well for me. Also I seem to be getting better at tweaking my welder settings even getting the "bacon frying" to sound better but I'm still working on getting it to sound more crisp which is turning into an interesting challenge.
Still loving the **** out of this welder!test piece 1.jpgtest piece 2.jpgtest piece 3.jpgtest piece 4.jpgtest piece 5.jpg
