Keep a little wiggle

by kemppiwelder

Keep wiggle the arc a little, even for small joints where you would normally weld straight. A little wiggling up and down over a horizontal joint makes it a whole lot easier to maintain control over the puddle. It's also easier to slag (do you call it slag? that "shell" over a finished bead? I'm from Sweden, what do i know...).
