Puddles Posted: Sun Jun 10, 2018 12:12 am     Views: 35      Rating: Not rated

Rosettes were welded at the highest amperage (Eastwood 135) with an 1/8" stickout and low wire speed to penetrate all 3 layers.

On the back side, the wire sticks up a little bit in the center of each weld. I had a few welds with incomplete penetration (no stickout on back) so I drilled them from the back side and rewelded.

Eastwood now has a spotweld tip that does nothing more than hold the nozzle 1/8" from the weld surface, and prevents you from seeing the puddle. If you have steady hands and know how long 1/8" is, you can skip the Eastwood accessory. 1957 lowlight Ghia rocker panel, heater channel
