Hey /diy/! Long-time lurker new time poster- just got an opportunity to practice some MIG welding. I learned stick in school, but this is my first time with MIG. Anyway, my bead seems to be clumping, I fucked around with different settings and shit, I can't seem to stop. Is it skill related? Is the piece I'm running bead on shit? Thanks in advance guys!

more heat and less wire. what machine are you using? does it have a door chart? the charts are generally pretty close. close enough to get you going until you learn to make finer adjustments on your own.
