Mig Welding Carbon Steel 1/4" thick 2f tee joint settings

WELD PROCESS = GMAW, SHORT CIRCUIT MIG, GAS METAL ARC, BARE WIRE MIG

METAL TYPE = CARBON STEEL, COLD ROLLED STEEL, AISI 1010

THICKNESS = 1/4” .250, 6mm

WELD TYPE = Fillet weld

JOINT TYPE = tee joint

POSITION = 2F, horizontal

VOLTS = 20 volts

WIRE SPEED = 333 IPM

WIRE SIZE = .035"

POLARITY = DCEP

GAS FLOW = 20-25 CFH C25 GAS

CTWD  = 3/8”-1/2"

FILLER METAL = ER70S6

ADDITIONAL SETTINGS = 

TIPS:A relatively short stickout aka contact to work distance CTWD of 3/8” to 1/2" makes a big difference.

The technique shown is simple series of V shapes that traces the leading edge of the puddle
