Anyone have any good tips on how to get good dime sized puddles formed without gravity pulling them down before they solidify? I welded up some new spring and shackle perches on our '49 Jeep Willy's frame yesterday and I knew from welding school that welding vertical was going to be different (we didn't do vertical MIG welding at schoo. . .MIG was the only process we didn't do vertical in, maybe for good reason, but we did vertical OFW, SMAW, and TIG). I figured out on the first vertical run that I would have to speed up quite a bit compared to my flat welds, but once I sped up I started to lose the definition of my puddles. I have seen vertical MIG welds on this forum that look exactly the same all the way around so I know that it can be done (unless all of these welds are done on a bench where the part can be moved around and then put on the frame) and probably is more about practice and experimenting until I get the feel down just right, but I thought some of you might have a tip or two to help me out. The welds are strong, have good penetration, functional, and they are neat, but they do not look the same as my other welds and I would like for all of my welds to look exactly the same. Thanks!
