Still collecting those XP for level 2

after more practice stick-welding aluminumium, I can proudly report... I still pretty much suck at it. Getting better at maintaining arc at least.

Anyone got tips for fillets on inside corners? With Al, the arc always snaps to one side or the other, and trying to drag across the corner either sticks the rod (because of waaay fast consumption and a tendency to ball up) or blows out the arc.

(Remember I'm working on sheet and, at thickest, 1/8" plate--- I can't just crank up the amps and linger.)

The right tool

The band saw's intended function is cutting multi-inch-thick metal plate. More often, though, it's really the only tool I have that can open those freaking clamshell packages without a good chance of injury.
