pits at edges of tig welds on carbon steel

When I tig on carbon steel I get little pits or arch marks at the edges of the welds. I am using a miller 250 dx and argon gas. What is the cause of this?

is sounds like you are welding 12L14 free machining steel.

does it happen on all your steel welds or just some?
