Don't point the welder straight down either....slight angle.....also, if you can stand your part up then try welding from the top down.....thats how I get my best welds

plus you get better gas flow and your pushing your heat which means more penetration

have you overloaded it yet?

since you are running on 115 the duty cycle is kinda low.

how is the plug connected on the welder? like how it converts to each plug.

i know you are a pic *****. post a ton of pictures of the unit. you can email or pm me if u like.
