I found this series of instructional videos on youtube and followed a link to Expert Village. It could be helpful (to a degree) for those of us who don't know a darn thing about welding. And for those of you who do know how to weld, care to give your opinions about these videos?

I teach welding at a technical school. The few viedo I watch was very informative. I would think these viedo would be very good for a beginner that want to learn MIG welding.

Not bad sat all.
Well laid out and informative.

Even MIG takes a ton of practice and experimentation to consistently lay a good structurally sound/ aesthetically pleasing bead.

I didn't watch but whenever the boss use to tell me to teach someone, I would give them this one tip.

Watch the puddle behind the arc, and the groove in front of the arc, not the arc itself! Always worked.
