hello everybody,

i have a welding certification test coming up soon. its 1" thick material V-groove in flat position 1/4" root opening w/ a backer GMAW i believe the shielding gas is 98/2. It will be ultrasonically tested and bent. Looking for weld techniques for the root pass, really the only concern that i have for the test. Should i make cursive e's, run it straight thru?? feedback would be appreciated!!!

make sure to push the puddle and keep the wire on the leading edge of the puddle.
I would trace the front edge of the puddle on the root.

anyone else got any tips?
