I often here from two sides of the coin. Some say lay a pattern and some say just shoot without a pattern like a bead of caulk. I find myself often doing both depending on the thickness of the materal and what sized welder I am using. What is the general consenous on this?

I just posted about this.. and what I had found.. when I searched this topic on the internet.

From what I read.. the consensus was it should look like caulk, and you should make a pattern (Vs/Us/Cirlces) only to fill in the gap between the 2 metals as this type of patternd doesn't penetrate as well as just pushing the beed along..

But using a V to fill in the gap would make a stronger joint than just pushing using not enough weld.
