Finally! Some measure of success.

All I have done differently is change the metal I was welding.

I think that other stuff I was welding may have been some kind of tool steel instead of stainless.

This piece I know is stainless because of what I got it off of.

This welded completely different than the other stuff I have used. I was able to get a good puddle, the molten puddle didn't try to jump up onto my tungsten and the puddle was much easier to manipulate.

The beads came out shiny. No gray, no cratering and nice color.

This was actually very easy to weld with. I enjoyed this session.

So now I need to get some more real stainless and get to practicing towards getting nice consistency and spacing with my beads.
