I used the mobile site for a while as it allowed me to search more easily, but it is not worth the headaches with it cutting off thread titles, giving weird error messages, etc..

lets be real. Photobucket being an ******* is what really kicked off the decline of forums.

there's thousands of posts that now have useless photos because of photobucket. posts that were once incredibly helpful.

The cynic in me believes it was done just to serve more ads.

Forums are dying, people are transitioning to facebutt groups and the like which is a shame. Forums are a far superior platform for archiving knowledge.
FB is great for general stuff, but it allows the morons to be morons with minimal expectations. Its basically where all the dregs of society go to congregate, and make themselves known. Forums generally attracted a much higher quality person thats for sure.

To me, it's all all about the way that posts are curated and set up. Facebook is hot garbage when it comes to keeping track of things and organization.

Speaking of Hot Garbage, there's a guy that posted several threads on the Book o Faces today about Dirty Works screwing up again. Shipping non-working markers and incorrect parts. DW is a dumpster fire of ridiculousness.

I know a guy who worked for them. It's as much of a **** show as there can be. I'd never do business with them. He's still owed money and equipment that they had sent out for testing. This was a few years ago.

The marketplace doesnt even work for a lot of stuff. Ill have to make reposts of things multiple times, as it marks them as spam for whatever reason.

On a happier note, I’m looking forward to seeing Ahsoka in season 2 of the Mandalorian.

Not a welder but I'm guessing not enough amperage and (or?) too high of a feed speed.
My first welds were way better than that but I had help setting up the machine.

I know I’m not a welder and have no experience in it, but even I know that doesn’t look right. I hope they didn’t pay for that.

I've never seen a weld that bad. By guessing, it's MIG with flux core wire done with low amperage, the tip too far away and poor surface preparation. The white stuff around the the weld and all the spatter says flux core. The random bits of wire says MIG. The lack of cut-in on the base stock says low amperage. The broken wire says the arc distance was probably causing it to stick and break off which is also related to the heat. All of these problems are made worse by the surface prep and many square tubes have been oil quenched or some other type of rust prevention that causes welding issues. A grinder with a flap wheel saves a lot of headaches. I'm not a professional welder, but making welds that bad takes effort.

Probably done with a cheapo harbor freight welder. But things i can see, too cold, and no technique are the biggest problems. It seriously looks like they dont know what they are doing, not wearing a hood, and didnt set the machine up right. So a cheap fluxcore harbor freight welder can do thin materials ok, but if you cant make it hot enough to melt the base metal and tie in like its supposed to its gonna be a failed weld. Just not that bad.

My brother is a certified welder and he said it was probably setting the amperage too high and the feed rate too low which would basically burn off the wire. He also said if it were flux core it'd be more porous, so it's likely not shielded. The white stuff is probably some residue or whatever on the metal that burned off.

Either way... I am no welder, but I've never even seen anything that bad before. My brother said he's had people apply that did worse on the job screening.
