    I would use 1/8-inch 7018. All welders run different. Try around 110 to 120-AMPS

    Sure, pipe is welded every day that way. Well, pipe welders use 6010 for the root pass, and for the hot pass. Then fill and cap with 7018. Using...

    When you weave, hold just for a split second on the edges / toes of the 6011 weld. That should let the undercut fill in. If that doesn't work. Turn...

    If you're going to run a lot of 6011, or 6010. A wire wheel on a small grinder really cleans the slag off nice.

    Here is a 6010 fillet weld. Stacked on top of each other. Pipe welders stack 6010 when welding pipe.

    I paid over $12,000.00 for my Vantage 400. In SMAW mode the PowerArc 200ST runs the same. Mark, maybe you guys should raise the price of the 200ST! :D

    YES! I don't believe in pad welding a lot. Lap welds, and fillet welds, then maybe later V-groove welds will teach you more about welding.
