    I typically just turn the spatter all the way down, or almost all the way.

    Those are some of the most beautiful welds I have ever seen! The heat effected zone shows that they were obviously burned in. I would like to hang this on my wall as art. An industrial picture frame or clock housing.

    Nice workmanship. I have a Lincoln Power MIG 200. What setting and shielding gas did you use?

    Re: Mig like Tig

    Not a pro here by any means with a mig. In fact I hardly ever touch it.
    Playing around with a new machine and got it dialed in here after a quick bead or two. Will try to dial it in a little better.
    .030 wire. c25 gas. 3

    Both pics are the same weld just different angles

    thoughts? cold?

    Re: Mig like Tig

    Got a new Everlast might last week. I haven't really mig welded except for spool guns for a few years but I'm trying to get my technique and settings back now


    Not the most consistent but I'll figure it out.

    Hey zt if you still ever get on here, when you do outside corners do you do edge to edge. Or have a small open root. Or an overlap?

    Thanks! It's an Everlast powermig200 c25 .035 er70s6 they didn't have 030 which I'd rather have for this. The middle one didn't have enough wire speed and was cold. If I go any hotter the ripples start to blend together. This machine also has inductance on it and so that's another curve ball.

    Im still in the "try not to make your welds look like a drunk 5 year old did them" phase.

    You guys sure have gotten the welding 'art' part figured out. Thanks for sharing.
