the red lines along the welds are my attempts. the problem is, when i want to show him something he gests discouraged quickly. thats just 5 hours, 10-15 mins a day and on staturday we brought some beer to take it on easy and it was somewhere near 1,5h of welding, there was time to explain the difference between tight to long arc and welding on cold or hot material. on the last pic i see 6 rippless that are somewhere near top class quality, height and width. *thats my attempt* is that a perfect weld? i would say no. I could done it better, and someone else would make it even better. he is struggling with closed corners, does well laying beads on flat material. what type of joint would You guys suggest? i was wondering about lap joints.
