        Everlast powertig 185 micro w foot pedal came with wp17 torch, i know its not the best but i figured i would buy this one to learn just in case i really didnt like it . Im already considering selling this one to get the syncrowave 210 so it matches my mm252

          your welds look good for only doing it for 3 weeks. My recommendations are to use smaller rod like 045 or 030. It is hard to flow good trying to melt 1/16 at 53 amps. with the smaller rod you will be able to weld without breaking the edge.
