Thanks for all the advice. I have read through the posts. I tried to make certain my ground was better, prepped the welds a little differently. Tried a couple welds, then promptly ran out of wire. Tried again the next day, and ran out of gas!
So I had the tank filled today. I asked the tool place (where I bought the welder) about a trade up to a new welder. It's funny how the story changes, from when I bought the used welder off of them, how it was no problem to trade in/upgrade. Today it's a little different story, surprise -surprise Anyway, got a recharge, and I bought some new contact tips.

I told him that I'd come back and check out the new welder at another time (NOT)

So I'll try again, tonight, after xmas shopping.
