Do you have an oxy-acet rig? That is another welding technique that can enhance other welding skills that is often overlooked. I do blacksmithing as well as welding, and use oxy welding for things like welding a forged leaf to a forged branch. It welds through the thick scale nicely, and is a bit slower, giving me the time to make a joint that looks less like a weld bead, more like a natural branch joint.
At my shop table I can forge weld, oxy weld, stick, mig or tig weld now, each has its own pleasure and appearance.
