I DISAGREE! you have to stitch weld and turn up the wire feed a little. you need to deposit more weld material than normal otherwise it drips back out!

ya, but stitch welding means different things to different people..

I though about what I should write there..

I've had the best luck with like 1/2" to 3/4" long "stitch" welds...

I guess spot welds was the wrong term to use there... ;)

Turn up your wire speed and voltage and drag the puddle. You can carry a countinuios bead. I been doing it for years at the shop. Good Luck and Have fun.
