I have used the Miller Weld Calculator quite a bit for when I need some quick MIG settings to get me in the ball park.
Weld Calculators and MIG charts are OK for a starting point.
But weld calculators fall short when it comes to overhead, vertical, pipe welds, and any other weld that is not done flat on a workbench.
So I am making hundreds of short 30-45 second video pages that not only list detailed weld settings, but show a quick video of the weld.
Meanwhile, why not take the Free Trial at welderskills.com and see hundreds of other welding videos done by select instructors like, JD Brewer, Roy Crumrine, Brad Goodman, Sam Hagan, and others.

TIPS: KEEP A FAIRLY TIGHT ARC AND KEEP TORCH ANGLE TO A MINIMUM
Aim for an arc length that is equal or less than the diameter of your tungsten electrode.
Torch angle can be forgiving provided your arc length is tight.
