Thanks for the tip. I'll turn down the speed a little. Antother possible factor is that 3/16" is maxing out my machine on 120v. I really need to get 230v run in my garage.

But this was my first time welding on round tube. I really wanted to build his ladder first as practice but he insisted on the sliders. I just hope they hold up to his 7700lb truck.
