To produce the best welds, a lot of practice is required.
It is a process in which trial and error become an essential part, so there is nothing to worry about if everything does not work out as planned in the beginning.

Tips to get the ideal weld
However, you can keep in mind a few tips that will help you make the mistakes smaller to get the result you are looking for in much less time.
First of all, you will have to get the right electrode for the job you are looking for. This should depend on the situation that is worked within the weld, taking into account gravity as an essential factor that affects the final result of welding.
You will need to have a good welding rack to have a useful guide, especially if you carry out vertical welding.
You must seek not to undermine as far as possible, which can happen since the electrode must be woven, and this work may be torn off at times, and not enough metal fill is available.
Remember also that having a larger puddle size will help you have much greater control of the situation in general.
It would be best if you also tried to stay away from strange metal sizes since most metals come in specific and standard sizes.
Finally, make sure that you know the arc length, that is, the distance of both the metal and the thickness of the electrode you are using.
