    try cleaning your welds first, youll get a loss less splatter with it. What size wire are you using, and what settings on the welder.

    looks like flux core to me. Little bit a time with the grinder or wire wheel. Otherwise it looks good.

    yea, theres nothing you can do to prevent the spater so i will be hitting it with the grinder. They do have a spray that is supposed to reduce the spatter but i dont care for it.

    i use flux core as well, i wipe it with acetone first and have little to no splatter. Just depends on the project though, i am almost finished with my cage as well. will snap a few new pics today./
