Now that Jody has you started, it's time to practice practice practice.
He'll explain some starting tips for voltage and wire feed settings, and will explain in a little more detail how to start refining your MIG welding technique.
One of the best ways to get a lot of practice with a small amount of metal is stacking beads on a tee joint.
Remember, "practice makes better" (because perfection doesn't exist).
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) techni...
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.
