Nice work by the way. cant really tell but may want to use some gussets for strength. Hate to see you roll over and the rack fold up under the weight. Just a suggestion.

Looks really good. I use leather sleeves, easy on/off and no hot splatter convulsions.

I've been known to weld in short sleeves regularly, but use long sleeves when welding overhead. I have done the welding spatter dance by welding Pakistani style (welding in flip-flops) when I have a small repair to do, and don't want to get dressed in the proper gear...

I ran out of argon/co2 so this is my first time welding with flux core .035"





Still needs some work but not too shabby!

Same thing happened to me the first time I ran out of gas and had to switch to flux core. Good penetration but spatter like heck!

That's my experience too. It looked super ugly so I was surprised when I wired em clean.
