Ok, after much aggrivation and a little home re-wiring, I finally got a set up to where my stick welder doesn't blow the breaker every time I touch it to the tank.

Now, the issue is the welding itself. The stick sparkrs and "melts" away, but there is no weld left behind. I have tried many different power settings, including the highest. Can this be because of cheap sticks i bought at harbor freight? I think i'm going to stop at Home Depot tomorrow after work and pick up some different ones to try.

This is my first time welding, so I don't know for sure if that's the issue or not, but we'll see. Should have some pics tomorrow night.
