How bad do I weld?
the late, great Jim Davis taught me to (when welding in a straight line) to use a "horseshoe" sort of motion with the tip ... end result is try to make your continuous welds look like "a stack of dimes" ...
Not that my welds are particualrly wonderfyul all the time, but that bit of advise took me a long ways toward improvement.
Obviously, the material thickness you are welding will determine what technique is best, but on heavier plate type situations where the idea is to lay in a bead ... that was great advise for me.
I have a 110 MATCO wire feed with Argon tank ... seems to handle all I do here at the house.
