I was today years old when I just learned this way to stick weld. Please keep in mind that I have been stalking these forums for more than 14 years, and pretty much have everything I need to build an AZ bike, or 3, except the square tube steel, and a working knowledge of how to weld. I have scavenged a lot of parts from several donor bikes. I just bought a welder earlier this year, and the only thing I have done with it was take it out of the box. I have watched countless hours of welding instruction videos, and thanks to a brain injury I suffered a few years ago, every time I get the urge to plug the welder in and give it a rip, my brain gets flooded with a thousand "what if" kinda questions and concerns. I know.........shut up and plug the dam thing in, but then I found this video.
