It looks a little cold but not bad. Just for comparison this was done with a HH140 with flux core

First try at mig welding today, I've only done tig before. 1/4" steel using flux core on a Lincoln 140. What do you guys think?

Not bad for your first shot... Next time clean the rust off and bevel your two pcs so you have a groove to sink the filler wire into. With flux core you actually don't want to do any cursive 'e's or half moon patterns. Just drag with about a 10-15 degree angle.

You've got to keep your weaves tighter together. Also, torch angle appears to be aimed at the flat piece a little too much. Unless it's the camera angle, it looks like you have more weld on the flat piece instead of an equal amount of weld on both pieces.

The weld also looks a little "cold". Try upping your amperage 5 amps at a time, until the metal flows a little better.

To help you understand what I'm saying......

Practicing my heat control, i know the weave needs work still but have heard of people doing this so i figured i'd give it a shot.

3/32 might be a bit big for that thin of material while you're learning. But it's a good universal size. Im not familiar with that machine but it looks like it does pretty well with thin material. I've used a few Lincoln machines that get crazy arc wander at low amperage.
