You your getting globs your not getting penetration the wire is making the glob. You need to not move the gun till the puddle forms. Also keep the end of the mig gun tight to weld puddle. Like I said tons of videos showing how to setup and run the gun. MIG is pretty simple once you learn to start the puddle. Practice an thick metal 3/16” or thicker flat and just run beads. Start the arc watch puddle form them slowly move gun. No reason to to any other postions till you can run a straight bead on flat metal.

Can't tell you guys how much I appreciate all the comments and suggestions.

I'm getting globs all right, in fact that's about all I'm getting is globs, and all down the line. Bird crap globs in fact. Penetration burns on the other side of the work on most all of them too.

One of the things I want to try changing is to change my body position. Thinking back on it, all I remember is seeing the gas nozzle. I must be positioning myself so that the nozzle is blocking my view somehow. I was doing the most comfortable, but if my memory is right I'm going to have to find a different way even if it's more uncomfortable.

Thanx again for making me stop and think about this more.

If you don’t or can’t see the actual puddle that is your main issue. Also get your face closer to the weld if you arms length away thats to far.

Practice making a puddle and controlling it then go from there.

Sometimes it helps to take an "Introduction to MIG" course at a local technical school or college. For the costs in involved, it may bring you peace of mind having an instructor to help critique and provide suggestions. And as with most things, practice, practice, practice....

I would have done this years ago when I first started to learn welding. Welding courses are available locally but you have to commit to a full program and pay for the full program at those schools. I.e., not for a hobbyist or even a mechanic whose intention is not to be a full time welder.

Gone are the days of taking a single class or credit hr. they want you to take full courses which are $$$$.

There are a few guys on youtube that do offer classes on each process. They aren't cheap either but way cheaper than a full course.

This guy is in Vegas. Call him and see about price for just a MIG class he list his classes prices which aren't bad. Take an 8hr MIG class and you should be good to go.
