    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.

    5th street,

    I've never paid much attention to this thread but just yesterday I stumbled across two tutorial videos of yours on youtube. I thought they were very well done and I'll hopefully be trying some of what I learned from them at some future point.

    5th street Fab,

    I just saw one of your You Tube videos. In it you where doing your cursive "e" oscillation up-side down for a horizontal fillet weld. Your forward sweep of the loop, along the leading edge of the weld bead, should be upward, not downward.

    This is kind of unrelated but in your post you can clearly see some brown on the right side of each "dime". My MIG techniques is very similar to your guys' "MIG like TIG'" technique. I get a lot of this brown, is it low argon or just a symptom of using C25?

    (Sorry for the doublepost but I am curious)

    Did you buy that speed square like that or mod it? I have not used a speed square with that large of a cut out in the corner. Thanks

    Thanks bud! That means a lot coming from you! It's a lot of fun and it makes it look good for customers. Sometimes it'll get me out of grinding!

    You're absolutely right. And right after that video I realized it and started doing it the right way haha but it's already out there. Oh well.

    If you're talking about the yellowish brown deposit that defines each ripple it's just a silicon deposit. When your ripple cools enough by the time you wrap back into it it will form.

    And ya I cut my squares so I can place them in fillets I've welded
