Well I did my first real project. It's made mostly from 1" square tubing about 1/16th thick. Welding a thin joint is much harder than laying down beads on a plate! My first attempt I blew right through the tube. To fix it I just let it cool down, built up some tacks, and flapper wheeled it smooth again.
Here is a butt joint (my best looking one). It's not the best looking weld in the world, but considering that this is just a simple rack that will hold almost zero weight, I think it will do.
I'm super impressed with this little welder. It really takes the guesswork out of welding when you know your combo works!
