Stick Welding Techniques and Tips 7018 Lap Weld

In the video I show a really basic lap joint made from 1/4″ steel and describe how I weld it. I also show the welding being done so hopefully you can get a feel for this type of common welding joint and lay down the correct bead. The heat is set in the 120 amp range and I use a 1/8″ 7018 for this weld.
