Hey All, Looking for advice on how to avoid slag inclusion on deep pocket welds. I am trying to weld angle to box section where the round corner on the box section is creating a deep pocket to fill as shown in Pic 1. Pic 2 shows the results after a bit of cleaning up. I dont see a way to keep the slag out of the weld as it has nowhere to go but I guess I am doing it wrong. Im welding it on the flat using 6013 at approx 60amp. I point the rod up into the joint and pull it back. Would I be better off doing it standing up (vertical) and work for top to bottom? Any advice welcome as most youtube video are 1/2 plate overlapped or T jointed in perfect position which doesn't help in the real world.
