    Good thought Bob....

    looks like a gas starvation/corruption problem....

    or maybe air getting into the molten arc puddle

    Very good question. Especially the welds near the bottom look like the shielding gas was AWOL.

    That's how the old manuals were printed before all of the fancy smancy digital screens. Bang the big lever close and fine tune it up with the wire speed...

    Check out weldingtipsandtricks.com and go to the MIG section, watch some of Jody's videos and it will make you happy.
