Good welds for flux core.
Thanks for posting some good beer porn.
Heheh yeah she's great : ) I've got a load better at welding, annoyingly I only got the hang of it by the last few welds where I learned enough control to do the 'half moon' method - ended up with way better penetration and less lumpyness.

You can put multiple layers of aluminum foil around your weld site to catch that ugly splatter. The hot bits pick up some aluminum on the way through the foil and won't stick to the base metal.
Yeah it is a flux core welder, I couldn't justify spending more cash to get a better one without trying with a basic one first. I used an angle grinder to flatten the welds down and painted the frame black, so the splatter wasn't too much of a problem, will use the foil method next time I weld though thanks for the tip!
More pics will come tomorrow, I promise!
