Love the website! I even bought a t-shirt!!!

I'm a novice flux core welder and loving it...here's what my welds look like so far..any advice on how to make them better would be appreciated...thanks!

I cant tell a lot from the picture but it looks like you could use a bit more heat and you might need to slow down a little..it looks like you are weaving and taking pretty big leaps...tighten up the stroke a little and watch it get better.

I see the weaving, but his welds look clean! Mine are crispy with a lot of penetration. I switched polarity from the set up for MIG. For FCAW I'm using DCEP. My arc is great and the sound is really smooth. Should I go back?
