110 amps and move faster.

Ya need to melt metal quickly, so that the metal around don`t get hot. Black is cooked. Golden is what you need, set gas postflow to 1 sec and cool your weld end with it, when finished.

I want my TIG time back. (MAG at work).

Move faster and add your filler faster, you are doing what looks like fusion welds to me, they are done without filler.

For starters, add more filler, work on one thing at a time. There's plenty of time to get everything down.

Your HAZ around your weld is HUGE...your waiting for a puddle. Up your amps, puddle dip and move. You're laywiring too. How's your fitup?
