Axle Welding and Cutting

I cut the spring brackets off the rear axle, working with the cutting torch was much easier this time. I wish I could say the same for the welding. I welds the trailing arms tabs on to the axle housing. The welds look horrible. It takes so much gas to heat the housing that I keep blowing the puddle around, I even drilled out the orifice to give a much larger tip. I need to ask someone about this. Luckily, or so, I am nearly out of O2 so will ask the AirGas guys when I refill the bottles this week.
