Bob,
I will take everything you said into consideration and give it another try tomorrow. Pretty sure tips are aligned and dressed nicely but I might experiment with making the contact points larger. I see that Miller has a tip with a large flat surface that is recommended if you need one side of the weld to be smooth. Might consider trying one of those tips. Something I hadn't thought of was clamping and activating the timer separately. It's easy to do on my machine. I keep seeing references to reducing current by using longer tongs. The ones I am using are pretty short like 6". Is installing 18" tongs something I should consider? I'm already down around 1/4 to 1/2 second weld time so I can't really go any shorter. Again, your advise is appreciated.

Thanks,
Bibb in San Antonio
