I’ll have to try that. Does that help prevent blowing out?

It might. It keeps from welding to the surface that you have your work resting on.

Safety note, please wear safety glasses under your helmet and when chipping slag. Besafe.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I use a thick piece of 1/2" copper a lot for body work such as a cub hood with unwanted holes someone drilled in it, clamp the copper on the outside and weld the hood from the inside, the copper keeps the steel from warping and the weld comes out flush against the copper and the copper will pop right off leaving the repair and almost no grinding or sanding
