There are 7 common mistakes people make when they start MIG welding:

1. They don't prep their material
2. Volts too high or too low
3. Wire feed speed too high or too low
4. Electrical stick-out that is too long or short
5. Gas Flow too low or high
6. Travel speed too fast or slow
7. Gun angle to steep

We're going to go into all of these issues and show you what to look for to troubleshoot your own welding parameters and technique.
