 I would check with the local community college or trade school to see if they have a continuing education or night school class on welding.  I've done a very little bit of welding but I've found that it is much easier to weld thicker stuff than thinner stuff.  But I don't know what else to try other than slowing down the wire feed rate.

  I've had this MIG for years. never was successful in welding anything. Now I need to weld part of the soft top and diff. extension. I got it out yesterday. It's a 220 volt Craftsman unit I am practicing on some thin metal pipes. All I'm trying to do is put some weld on the pipe. It is on the lowest voltage setting, but I'm burning holes through the metal. I've looked at YouTube videos on how to weld, but am not sure how to stop burning holes. The only other adjustment I have is wire feed speed. Do I adjust this up or down? Any pointers welcome.
