4F 7018 1/8 on 1/4 steel Overhead
In this video...overhead welding at 130 amps with 7018 1/8" electrode.
One mistake I made in welding school was running too cold on overhead
Overhead welding with a 7018 can be done at the same amperage used for flat or horizontal, or close to it. Set the machine hot enough so that it won't stick when you hold a tight arc, and then... hold a tight arc.
Matt Hayden - 4F tee joint Rooftop Overhead SMAW Stick welding 7018 1/8" stringers. Great practice for controlling the puddle in overhead position
