I have seen worst....I have made worst.....the thing about welding is that it is easy to pick apart a weld but unless you cut it in half or take an xray.....looks only tell you sooo much. They look acceptable!

Time and budget build...lots of pics:::: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/9...bench-1499127/

94 YJ slightly modified

i did cut one of them and it looks to be penetrating on both sides, i know i need more practice but just wanted to see if it looks like im heading in the right direction

The problem isn't the operator its the machine. they actually look good for that welder, it doesn't look like enough penetration but for what you did I don't think it matters since its not going to kill you if your weld fails. I wouldnt dare weld anything structural with that though.I would seriously look at getting a better 120v welder. Lincoln makes an affordable one, and it will pay for itself seven fold.
Those welders aren't actually a good one to learn with you will learn bad habits that can carry over if you decide to get a decent welder. There I said it you happy now? lol

I agree that the welder is the problem. I picked up the hobart handler 140 at tsc and wow what a difference. Penetrates 3/16 no problem and for the price is definitely one of the best investments I've made.

The real question is do you have a flange yoke on your SYE, that big shaft prob came from a Chevy 3/4.

Not necessarily. They make a flange yoke for SYE, but will it bolt up to that huge flange on that ds.
