    What's The Right Angle For Overhead Welding?

    Hi Guys (Newbie Here Again)

    I'm about to be doing a bit of over-head mig welding.

    I'm new at this, done flat and vertical outcome not bad.

    I rather get it straight from you expert who've done mig over head.

    QUESTIONS PLEASE:

    1. What angle is best when doin' the over-head ?

    I'm welding 18 gauage sheet metal for my restoration.

    2. What HEAT & VOLTAGE setting would you guys use ?

    Thanks guys
    GOD BLESS
