Try using some smaller wire too, like .025" or .030". I betchya you are using mondo huge .045" right? Practice on some scrap and try the stitch welding technique. Hold the gun at 45' angle to the work piece and pull, don't push, the puddle. (Drag it along, the reason is the spatter will richochet off away from the work piece instead of contaminating the area you are about to weld). Also are you set up reverse polarity? Flux core will weld either way, but doing a positive ground will draw the spatter into the piece instead of spraying it everywhere... Do a series of dime sized puddles with 50% overlap. Next thing you know you will be doing it upside down and backwards. I taught myself how to weld building my truck. I use a battery powered "ReadyWelder" that I got off fleabay for $200. If I can do it you can too. Like my grandpa used to say; "If it looks like chickenshit it will hold the same."

Do a single puddle, reposition slightly, then do another puddle, etc etc. This keeps the tubing from getting so hot you blow through, and allows you to get a steady rest for all 360 degrees of the weld. It's impossible to free hand that. Also grinding your weld area clean is important, as well as the location you place the ground.

My welds are far from perfect, but they are strong.
Lol looks like you TIG welded the damned thing. But you are smart about using a smaller gauge wire. One issue that you can have with the method your doing is it can cause inclusions because of the overlap. Flux Core is like stick welding. It has a slag pile that follows the puddle. Granted it will hold all the same but could crack later on. Flux core is a straight drag situation. Simply build a puddle and a pull. Don't weave or circle as it will cause an overlap with the slag pile.

Here is my MIG skills:

pulling a solid D in ethics what a joke of a class. going to the registrars office next week to get it rectified because the TA has been ignoring my emails for the last week, and they just blew me off when i told them that i was unable to access their audio lectures. you know, those things where they talk about the important things to know for the tests.

also FJ, long ago when i joined the boards here, there was an abundance of half naked girls posted on here. posted in sigs, and posted at the top of many threads to show up in the thumbnails. Guess what, i posted a thread, in which i stuck my neck out and got called queer and shit because i wasnt able to surf the forum in my house without looking like i was on a porn site, or so it felt. because of that thread, this side of the forum was scrubbed clean and has remained so. That said, i see absolutely nothing wrong with the girl in that photo.

Here is my MIG skills:

Slow down man. Whip, pause. You are not pausing. It ain't a squirtgun. (that said vertical up sucks!) I hear you about the inclusions, that's why I drag the puddle instead of pushing it. I also don't allow the puddle to cool, just release the trigger, reposition (on tubing), and lay back into it. I can still see the puddle glowing through the helmet. I haven't had a single weld crack yet, and I have 81,000 very hard mostly dirt miles on my truck. Just sayin'.



I blew through on this one. I'll bet you can see where.
