Overhead Stick Welding Screwing Around to Prove a Point

I just try to demonstrate how it’s really not that hard to run a good overhead stick welding bead. I end up screwing off during the welding process to show that welding overhead is mostly a head game that people play with themselves and it’s not really that hard to do. During the weld, I lift up my welding hood, switch hands, run in place, walk around, and just plain screwing around all while never sticking the rod. The end result is a weld that has one lousy spot and might not look the greatest but, I guarantee it will hold.
