That is pretty decent. I'd try stacking them side by side for a nice even pad. From there its on to different joint configurations, positions, bevels, tube, pipe etc.

A nice bead is like the keys to the kingdom. Once you have that, you can take it as far as you want.

that is a pretty common mistake when you are in a hurry to play with a new toy, I did the same thing and had to go back to the manual and when a friend was telling me about his problems when he was knocking the new off of his 180 he had done the same thing, it's amazing what a difference it makes. I read the manual a little before firing up the next machine.

good welding.

the heck with the duty cycle on the welder, tell me about the duty cycle on that grinder !!
