    Personally, I think some times people put too much emphasis on perfect torch movement. The main thing is to get both sides of the weld to melt and join together to form a beed weather it can be done with a circular motion, zig zag or strait forward with no side to side. If you are moveing in a circular motion and one side is not fuzeing you may need to breifly go to trapazoidal or what ever it takes to form the bead. I think the motions are more guides than set proceedure like a sowing machine, not to say you should not try to follow them, but put more concentration on what you are creating rather than how you create it.
    To all who contribute to this board.
    My sincere thanks , Pete.

      Pete,

      You're absolutely right!... Integrity in the weld is the bottom line... But I think all of us go "ooooh" when we see that perfect row of dimes...

      The guys welds in the Video I have... Are great technically but nothing to look it... It shouldn't matter... BUT! I am extremely ****! So... I want to strive for beautiful welds...

      You should see my Tool Box... Then you really know about me... LOL!

          That's a good point Pete. Every once in a long while I'll run what looks to me to be a near perfect bead and if someone were to ask me what kind of torch movement I used, I would honestly not remember. You just have your mind on the job at hand and do it and it turns out great.
          But I remember too when starting out you have to try many techniques to see what works. Like any skill you have to have practiced enough before it becomes intuitive. Engloid told me once about tig welding, some pick it up quick, some have to really work at it, and some never will be good at it. I'll be happy to be in the middle somewhere.

                Thanks Mike...

                I told you I was ****... It's just a Racer mentality you just go at everything all out.

                Now with everyone's help here, I hope to get my welding ablity up to match, I did a lot of research, and Dynasty 300DX Runner seemed to be the best thing out there, So if I fail... I have no excuse...

                Don't let me fail guys!

                Thanks, Tony
