This week we had a demo of stick (arc) welding and got to practice vertical welds. I also repaired the welded bars that had caused problems the week before. Thanks to all the suggestions from MIG Welding Forum on why I was getting bubbling in the welds. I got in a lot closer with the torch this week and the problem did not occur.
Updated: This was week 4, last week we had a chat about the modern art followed by some practice of MIG welding
