Making pretty tack welds

I'm pretty new to welding and i want to know how to make pretty tack welds when the two metals have too large of a gap between them to just make a small puddle to temporarily join them. Thanks

P.S. Your website kicks ass


good ground,

tack a little hotter than you would weld, and in short bursts.

auto dark helmet so you can tell exactly where your wire is pointing.



anyone else got some good tips for this fella?
