The Good (ish):



... if you ignore the tit where the up meets the down, & the crap back into the corner at the bottom...and...and...

The Bad:



... well, it's still attached pretty good, but damn messy by comparison.

& The Ugly:



... after going back over this with the torch to melt it in properly to both sides. Access to this one was the hardest.

Bear in mind these were all in a difficult position as I couldn't see the weld puddle very well most of the time, couldn't always get the torch or filler angle right either.

Is it a better idea to go vertical down when doing overhead vertical welds so one can see the puddle, or will a messy vertical up still be the better weld?

Cheers
Clint
