This past summer I bought a HH 135 without knowing how to weld, though I knew I was interested in welding (used my neighbor's stick machine a few times ) . I was able to weld ok but, looking at my past 'passes' they don't look all that great and I'm sure the proper penatration wasnt there.

To make a long story short, I am now 7 weeks into my Metal Fab Citation course and haven't had a chance to use my HH 135 for atleast that long. I have been very busy with studying. In terms of welding, so far they have taught us how to Oxy Fuel weld and Stick weld (6013, 6010 and 7024) and I have been doing fairly well. So I thought I'd see if I improved on my own welder at home. I'm happy with the result, does this look ok to you? Any comments would be great as I still have a lot to learn.

Not a bad looking weld.

A few hundred feet like that and then try one on your back under a vehicle trying to go around a muffler connection.

The total length of that weld is about 1' ...99' to go I must admit I hit the slag a little harder than normal. I was welding with 6010 at school and was use to chipping a bit harder than usual

I was referring to a hundred feet as an amount of practice weld.
