I have maybe an hour or so of actual welding time. Needless to say i pretty much suck at it. (but it's pretty fun i must say.) I've been grinding like 45s into plate i've been welding with an angle grinder. Makes sense that this makes more weld actually get where it needs to be or am i just making stuff up? Read somewhere that welding uphill is more penetration so i've been trying my hand at that.
Can someone tell me how this looks and ways to improve? I think i need more wire speed, and a more consistent pattern with the weld gun. Other than that i'm not sure.
Oh, and this is 1/4" plate. I think my welder is only rated for 3/16" plate so i have it maxed out. I don't have any 3/16" to practice on or i would be. Is this part of my problem?
