Ok G Robb, you've had another weekend. Have you piddled with the puddle any since last posting?

I have yet to get more seat time, but in watching some videos, I believe I had too long of an arc. This spring seems busier than others for some reason.

This past week was a little busy for me as well.

Our 2nd shift resident welder took off for a little vaca and I got pushed/drug to the shop to repair a dozen 3 and 6" cracks on an exhaust can. I hate running 1/8" beads. That small and I have to use my helmet with the extra cheaters on the glass.

Definitely keep the arc SHORT. I usually try to maintain a 1/32" arc length or the shortest I can get away with .

Thanks for confirming my suspicion. We have had pretty good rain storms come through and the garage has been too wet to do anything. Maybe this week I'll get a chance.
