Yeah, I think I had the gas WAY up and it was blowing the molten wire as it heated up.

I spent some time on my welding cart last night and I am going to finish it up today if possible. Thanks for all the tips.

Here are a bunch of welds that I made yesterday...

Please give me some feedback/comments/critics (sp?)

Everything feels better now that I am slowing down. My welds are a little fat or wide still, trying to figure out how to tighten them up, I think I need to slow the wire speed down to do this and not over heat everything.

Nice cart! Seems some wheels would help with moving it around!

Default I've got some wheels

Hey Drew,

I've got a set of swivel-type wheels that originally came with those metal kitchen racks you see in Costco. Lemmeno if you want'em - just collecting dust in my garage. I wanna say the wheels are like 5" in diam.
