    Got home this afternoon and ended up building a new computer for BOL , But While windows was loading went out and played with a couple of pieces of tubing out of the scrap pile .

    Above is before cleaning slag

    These 2 were first and had welder a little to hot / high , was burning through the tube

    This was after cleaning slag and getting adjustments a little better .


    Have to for sure retool my brain from welding with my 110/120 lincoln to this welder .

    Hopefully get to town in morning , want to pick up some rod to see if I can rekindle any brain cells from my high school days on stick welding . That could be Really entertaining !!

    In my case it was " Stick " Welding . Strike , Stick , Break loose , Strike , Stick , Break loose , etc.......

    My pictures Suck !! I can build computers from scratch , but trying to take a close-up without blurring , UGH !!

    If I take my time , set up every thing " Right " , ( Clean dust off glass of helmet also helps ) , I am still a hack , but am able to stick things together . Last weekends 5 minutes of play was the first welding done since last spring's Land Plane build , It comes around with time .

    S.A. : I really Appreciate Your Help , Thoughts and Ideas , Makes Hacks Like me a better Welder or at Least Gives Me Hope .

    .
    Many digital cameras have a "macro" button that you push for focusing on picture close-ups or else you get blury pics. I imagine even some higher end phone cameras have the feature too. I would almost guarantee that the camera you are using does if the picture is blurry. My company's expensive high dollar camera that I must use at work absolutely will not take a close-up picture without blurring unless that "macro" button is pushed.

    Well , Headed to town yesterday for some metal from my supplier . Couple of pieces of 1/4" plate and was also looking for some 1/4" square tube , maybe 2" x 2" but ended up getting a section of 2" x 5" or 2" x 6" , ( forget now ) what it was . Anyway , shot over to a welding supplier and picked up a 5# box of 6011 . Got home and ran 2 rods through the 200S . Welder works fine in arc mode , ( Meaning the MACHINE!! ) . Me on the other hand , ugh ! . First mig welding requires 1 movement , Horizontal , But Stick / Arc requires 2 movements , Both Horizontal and Vertical , ( Feeding rod is the vertical movement ) . Sorry People , Way to much Strain on this Brain at this point in my life . Did it years ago in high school but older now and Seriously Doubt Wiser , so I am reverting back to my favorite acronym ,
    KISS , Keep it Simple Stupid . ( Stupid meaning me ) . 1 Movement easier than 2 , Likely Why I don't Chew Gum either . Never would be able to walk any were .

    Fred H.

    P.S. Actually did better than I thought , never stuck the rod , Just Never burned more than 1" off the rod at a time either , So Shield Arc is right there also , " Moving to slow " .

    Fred;


    Where are the pictures of your stick attempts?

    Perhaps a seasoned pro could provide some constructive criticism.

    It does not take 30yrs to lose the hang of stick welding... A year or two will do it also!

    I guess I have gotten "spoiled" with MIG also
