In this video...common mistakes when learning to stick weld like amps too low, travel speed, arc too long, etc. using 6013 and 7014
Stick Welding with 3/16" 7018 electrodes on a multi pass fillet weld
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.
