Open Butt Root Weld 2

Its Horizontal Plate


I would recommend a 1/16 land filed or ground on the sharp part of the bevel. A 3/32" to 1/8" gap.
18 volts and 210 inches per minute of wire speed.
Use a slight drag angle and stay in the front of the puddle.

A slight up and down weave motion might be needed if you light up and things seem too hot.

Play around with how far you can stay in front without shooting whiskers thru.
