Had my first welding lab today at Cal Poly....... started with a SMAW (stick) Surfacing Weld. Here is one picture of my beginners welds, haha. I am open to any suggestions...... I really want to get good enough by the end of the quarter so that I can weld/build stuff for the K5 I will be getting. These were with a 6013 electrode at 155 amps.
