MIG cert. test vertical up open v-groove butt joint

by grant
(Prescott, AZ)

I've come to realize that there is more than one way to skin a cat or run a bead. The bead has a tendency to sag when I weld vertical up on a v-groove butt joint. Any suggestions on technique or settings? or a video that can show me optional techniques?


I have always had good luck with tracing the leading edge of the puddle.

like a rainbow, back and forth while maintaining a really close arc and pausing on the sides.

eventually, i will have a video showing this, but for now ,,,,,good luck.
