105 amps is the minimum amperage I would run for a 1/4" thick fillet tee joint.
Its just enough, but I prefer around 120 -125 amps

WELD PROCESS = SMAW, SHIELDED METAL ARC WELDING, STICK WELDING
METAL TYPE = CARBON STEEL
THICKNESS = 1/4"
WELD TYPE = Fillet weld
JOINT TYPE = TEE
POSITION = 3f vertical uphill
AMPS = 105 AMPS ( 105 IS A FAIRLY LOW AMPERAGE FOR THIS ROD AND WELD JOINT)
POLARITY = DCEP
ELECTRODE = 7018 1/8”EXCALIBUR
ADDITIONAL SETTINGS = ARC FORCE SET TO 3
TIPS: DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS ELECTRODES REQUIRE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT AMPERAGE SETTINGS.
ANY SUCCESSFUL DEMONSTRATION DISPLAYING AMPERAGE SHOULD GET YOU IN THE BALL PARK.TWEAK AMPS FROM THAT POINT AND ADJUST ARC CONTROL TO FIT THE SITUATION
