I'm just wondering what patterns you all use for the different welding positions.
I searched but didn't come up with what I was looking for.

I've found that if I'm welding flat I can use a weave pattern and it turns out just fine. If I'm welding horizontal a D pattern seems work work pretty good. On a vertical down a fast zig-zag works pretty good.

At this point I cannot for the life of me get a good vertical up. Well actually i can get maybe 1 out of 5, trying a fast weave and also a fast zig-zag and also noticed that turning the voltage and wire speed down a bit seems to prevent popping a hole right through the metal on the vertical up's

Have yet to try overhead.

Any suggestions on what patterns to run for the different positions?

Flame away!

Really appreciate the advice. I'm trying any and all joints in as many positions as I can get into. Pretty much just practicing any and everything as much as possible before I start in on the daily driver.

So a vertical up should turn the voltage down a bit and try a V pattern with a large tack.
Overhead turn the wire speed down a bit.

I'll play with it a bit and see what I come up with.
