    Yes mate. You probably just need to slow down a bit and turn the heat up a tad.

  15. Super poor ....if rods are damp you’ll struggle .they if correct type should be kept dry .

    Either your settings are wrong , your moving to fast , or rods too far away ....,

    Sorry

  18. My late father was the welding quality assurance guy in the local shipyard .... I'm not sure what he would have though of your effort, I suspect he would suggest you found something else to occupy your time or to practice a lot.
