Default Sync250 first and second fix!

I had some 1" close nipples to weld into inch and a quarter pipe for a pipe vice stand. I drilled some holes so I could do plug welds, it turned out nice, I wasn't smart enough to get pics.

Second fix was on a box blade I had picked up for my subcompact tractor. I noticed the fix when I bought the blade but figured I fix it if it ever broke, Well in about a month of use, it broke.
Pic 1, I Veed out one side and tacked the piece on.
pic 2, filled in the V
pic 3 & 4, ran a bead on either side of the first pass.

I didn't think to get the electrode size, but it was under 1/8. I think the amps were just over 100. I saw some slag inclusions, but was happy with the results. I ended up snapping the original weld when I hit a stump. I will try not to do that again! I believe it should hold for most of what I do, drag gravel around on the driveway.

Let me know what pointers will help me on a fix like this in the future, thanks for looking.

That is quite a large, heavy stick welder you got there...

I got it to weld aluminum but it was at the front of the garage and the easiest to put into service. I cant wait to get my pole-barn up, but all this rain is really putting a DAMPER on making any progress.
