    Looks like they were "walking the cup" for the wide beads... common in TIG pipe welding. High amps and fast movement. It look's like your trying to drive the torch down into the piece being welded.

    Moving side to side. This guy has a very steady hand. Looks almost robotic.

    started a topic nice welds

    nice welds

    reading a dodge bulletin board, saw this photo of a gusseted front axle. these welds are really pretty.

    this material is probably fairly thick. what type of welder would make this bead and what material do you think they used on this part? mild steel ... cromoly ... TIG ... MIG ?? there is some talented folks out there in this world, jeeze...i really suck.

    maybe i need to spend more time cleaning and preping the area to be welded, get a good ground and dont weld until i am more comfortable with my hand position.

Working...
