I find that I do good if I use like a whip technique where I weld using little cursive "e" pattern. It helps me to keep a constant flow. Not too fast and not too slow. At other times, I back the weld over itself just a bit with a back and forth like motion. So far all my welds are holding pretty good but I'm always wondering if I got enough penetration on some of them. Where I can see the backsides, I always check to make sure it penetrated good. I'm still fairly new to welding, so I'm watching a lot of videos and picking up tips and pointers from welders like Shepard.

I use .023 so I don't have to run the welder so high and get good welds. Here's a picture of what I use. It's cheap and reads the right way [cubic feet per hour] cfh instead of what a round needle. I replaced mind when it got bent and couldn't read it anymore, honestly - I started having my gas go longer between bottle fills.
Thanks Shepard. I'll look into getting a flow meter instead of the round needle. I'm still a rookie at all of this, so I welcome any advice that I can get.

Thanks again. I placed my order with Pegasus Auto Racing Supplies last night. Hopefully, I designed and built everything right but a little insurance never hurts.

The type of shielding gas you use and the transfer method used has a lot to do with the penetration too. I'm not too familiar with mig process but I do remember that from taking the class for the CWI.

There's a lot of helpful info here

I hope everyone is ok. Material things can be replaced. People can not.
