Well I was just wandering what you guys do to weld tube. If it makes a difference, .120 wall HREW vs. DOM. And I'm talking about MIG welding.

Push or Pull? Zig Zags, little C looking patterns, or straight? And how do you guys keep the bead going around the whole tube, or do you stop a few times? What are your guys' tricks to doing it good?

Thanks in advance. Also, pic.s of beads on tubes welded together would be nice.

I pull, little circles, and stop and go to re-position.

little c's, zig zag, pushing or pulling really dose not matter...its repetetion and what ever you are comfortable. personally i pull, with little side to side motion depending on my gas,wire and position.

I'm a fan of the circle pull.. just try to get the best position possible for the longest set and do it that'a way.. you can pull off most if not all in 2 shots if you start and finish right..

thanks for the replies guys. if a mod would move this to the tools section that'd be great.

Or I'll just make another thread.
