    The nice thing about a smooth welds are that it makes it easier to detect if you have any under cut at the edge of the weld.

    The nice thing about pulsing which will give you a rippled weld is that you get a little less heat input into the part, in some instances this is good and other times you want good heat input on say thick heavy weldments for good penetration.
    10/4 on that brother. Theres a time and place for every method. I run smoothe alot as well. Depends on what ya need.
