6g trouble

I have a weld test coming up its on 3/4 stainless coupling at the 6g postion . Im having trouble with the botttom of the weld dripping i call it seagul poo . I cant go.any lower temp because the specs for the test has a range of 55 amps to 75 amps any help

have you tried using a slight weaving motion or a series of small loops with the rod?

stainless stick wants to drip and sag but you have to fight against it.

try using about 70 amps and a tight arc making a series of loops.

you have to be able to hold a tight enough arc to keep the weld metal pushed flat, while at the same time, you have to get moving and not let the heat build up too much.
