Default Re: Flux-core/MIG for frame welding?

I tend to do the opposite. I run too slow. Most of my welds look piled up but have great penetration. I tend to move just slightly faster than when the puddle will fall through.
I have tried going faster only to find undercutting. That I really do not want to see.
Yeah, I am still a noob at welding but nothing (knock on wood) has ever fallen apart on me yet.
I am a big fan of angle grinders and flap wheels! They polish down my welds nice and smooth.
