    and that is the type of elitist crap I can't stand, so it comes easily to you, the bloke is asking questions to try and better himself even if he might not get it straight away, and going from the pics he posted he didn't do to bad for the first time running it, and he seems to have a pretty good attitude to not get his back up with A holes as well.

    to put it bluntly, If I were on the job with the two of you and Moto and the three of you needed help with something, Moto would have it without question even if it meant some work on my end to get him up to speed, the two of you would be told to go pound sand and figure it out for yourself.

    Just going by his past actions. simple as that.

    Ive told the kid many times he is a good welder.... But the fact is, he loves to argue. You may not see it in this particular thread..... But that has usually been the case.

    curse of the young, I reckon...
    The same for quitting your job before you have another one lined up..... Especially with 2 young children to support.

    But you and I are just keyboard warriors.

    You don't get it. The dude comes on, asks for advice, then sets out to prove those who give him the advice wrong.

    If you were testing for me and you didn't either look around and find some scrap on your own or ask me for something and you busted that's on you. My world is make or break weld test everywhere and I always find something to check my heat and rig. Btw dual shield is very forgiving. Here's a pic of my first 6g tig root/hot .045 dual shield out.

    Finally got a few pics uploaded. Dual shield is pretty forgiving as already mentioned. I always set my volts and adjust the wire accordingly. This was a tig root and hot pass dual shield from there.
