Duration:   3  mins

Craig Hopkins covers the three types of welding basics. He teaches you how to stabilize, distance, and consistently push the bead in a lap weld. For a plug weld, you will learn to start outside the circle and bring it in just licking the edges. Lastly, the butt weld will teach you to move the torch further away and to lightly push 3-4 beads then cool it down with compressed air to keep the metal from warping up.
