I need tips on running 7018 uphill of carbon steel pipe

I am teaching myself how to weld some what i am a pipe fitter apprentice and i just can seem to get my 7018 to look decent especially when i join seams my 6010 root is perfect im told but im having problems with me 7018 looks? any ideas?


set amps just high enough so that when you hold a really tight arc, the rod wont stick.

then....hold a tight arc. hold those corners to avoid undercut.
