Stick Welding Tips and Techniques 7018 Vertical Up

In this video I talk about how I go about welding a vertical up with 7018’s. I will show you what to look for while I’m welding and how it’s important to hold the corners and sweep quickly across the middle the whole way up. This will avoid the much dreaded under-cut that many welders seem to get while welding vertical ups with a stick welder. I have the welder set at 120 amps and I use 1/8″ 7018 welding rods.
