yeah the nice T joints are definitely the easiest to lay down nicely. I'll post some more tomorrow closer to a butt joint, maybe a 30* angle between plates. I'll post a pic of the seam next to that one welded up as well. Its more of an edge weld between the 2 plates.
And yeah, welding every day does make you get better pretty quick! haha

Every weld on my entire cage has been done with a battery powered readywelder with .035 flux core. I use two yellow tops to power it, haven't had a weld fail yet. I am also self taught, and it shows, lol.

this one's not great, it was in a tough spot so I had my face about 3 or 4 feet away, couldn't see real well.

Also added some veiny texture to a battle hammer Im making.

Our old one was tried, true and loved. It was used to build many baja cars and even went clean through a garage door one drunken night. It was tragically stolen a few months ago.

It's replacement will be made of 1" solid bar stock with a ball peen welded on the end. Here is the handle.
