Part 6 - MIG Vertical Uphill (MIG Basics with Jody Collier)
Jody Collier - Intro to MIG Welding • 5m 7s
One of the most important concepts in welding is POSITION. Let's talk MIG welding, vertical uphill.
Mig welding vertical uphill requires using some manipulation to prevent the weld from being too convex. Proper settings (lower settings than what are normally used for flat and horizontal) technique, and short stickout are the keys.

Part 7 - Overhead MIG (MIG Basics wit...
Mig welding overhead is mostly a matter of getting comfortable. Again, POSITION.
The same settings and techniques that are used for flat and horizontal also work on overhead. But if you typically weld really hot, reducing the wire speed by 10% might help.
Part 8 - The One Technique to Rule Th...
If you're just looking to keep things simple, this one MIG technique works for all positions.
By tracing the front leading edge of the puddle, this one single MIG welding technique gets penetration in every position.
Part 9 - Short Arc MIG, Push vs Pull ...
Using a push angle vs a pull angle is an argument that shouldn't even exist, but folks continue to argue. Both work.
For spray transfer MIG, pushing is usually best. But for short circuit MIG, both pushing and pulling have their place... and that's a good thing because sometimes you don't have ...
