Ok I think that was my problem. I'm getting much better penetration.

Yep I agree. Also I forget to pause at the end of a weld to let the material fill. When you don't pause at the end you get a flat stop at the end of the weld.

That's gas for sure. Looks a lot better. Gspup knows better than me, but I think you're close... looks like a little less filler would be good, what setting is your welder on? I usually weld 3/16th's on 5, wire speed 60. Since were both on Hobarts that might help a little.

Cake fab ? Nice work ! As to the ring , she seems to be a heck of a nice girl who tolerates your lack of fear on the trail quite well
