    Sounds like it might have taken a minute to download the video to the computer before it could show the PLAY button arrow . . .

        Filling in those holes it’s a good practice to start outside the hole and bring the puddle in. At least that’s what I’ve been told, I’m no pro.

            Which weld thru primer are you using? I used the UPol #2 it worked just fine. Since you are new the thing you need to make sure of is that you are getting good penetration into the crockers and supports. Sometimes you can weld the hole up nice and neat but not have any bonding to the substrate especially if you have your wire speed set to fast.
            I suggest getting two pieces of scrap and practice. You can check by looking at the backside of the metal you are welding to or take a cold chisel and try to split them.

            I use this everywhere I weld...... if you wait for it to dry, its awesome

            the aerosol cans are very pricey, a quart of this lasts long time Joe

            I weld everything clean then paint overtop long after the welds have been done cooling down, then seam sealer then your final coat of paint, seems like overkill but I've had projects sit outside year round and have yet to see a spec of rust ;) The good stuff is POR-15

              mike 67... thats exactly what i did. i drilled some holes in some scraps and practiced. i can tell its penetrating when i look under the piece, im using SEM weld primer. i think all my issues started when i used the primer on 2 clean practice piece, like i said, my welds looked pretty good with the pieces that had zero primer on them. Ill have my daughter post pics of the finished floor once im done .

              is this a mig welder? assuming it is you do not need argon, CO-2 works great and much cheaper, again if this is a mig welder- it does not like to weld on anything but clean metal ,no primer at all. if you want to make sure no rust after the weld use rust mort.on the metal then POR-15. rust mort comes in two different approaches one is a semi clear liquid that works great to remove rust, the other rust mort gets same results and produces a black finish when it dries and requires no painting to cover, but can be painted over. mig welder- clean metal only.

              No offense to anyone, but I wouldn’t put POR-15 on a lawnmower.

              As for the welding technique; I’ve never used a weld through primer. Clean metal and start on the outside and work to the center.

                I agree with you on the POR-15, covering an issue is not repairing it . the pre prep to uses it is not worth the effort.

                    I have a Miller 35 Mig welder -got it in 1978 still going strong,I'd like to learn to tig weld especially aluminum, good welding is an art form. there are good tutorials on you tube,but nothing beats doing it. good luck,

                      Make sure you have your gun @ >45deg or you shield will blow away, that also means no fans blowing across your work
