here's MIG spray transfer instead of short circuit, https://youtu.be/WNRBSUNvFEs?si=PvOFLWRbOjefT8Hd

I do stick welding ... very badly. I wish I could see what I am doing. Most of the time it takes me too long after the arc strikes to focus and get my bearings and by then I've already burnt a hole right through the work.  :(

If you don't have an auto darkening helmet get one, I find being able to quickly adjust the shade level means I can see everything and get on track quickly.

and check if you do (or don't) need glasses. I'm getting old I need my glasses of for close up work, make a world of difference when you can actually see what you are doing

I have one. I think I need much more practice and not just do a weld here and there every few months. The auto-darkening helmet seems to not work very well so I have gone back to regular shades. I think it may be that the first may need to charge some battery or capacitor first and I just have it in a dark corner in the garage. I have thought that maybe next time, before welding, I should leave it out in the sun for a while and see if that fixes the problem. but I am always in a hurry so I just use the old helmet.

I should play with the helmet and with the welding.

That is also part of the problem. When I was younger I could focus my eyes on the work but now I need to move my head back and forth until the work is in focus.

It just takes a second for me to focus and get my bearings but a second is more than enough to burn a hole through thin metal.

I wish I could work on really thick work with a nice puddle, like in the video, and plenty of time to enjoy the progress.
