    Run the first pass on beveled plates with a 5/32-inch and use as high a current as you can handle to obtain a UNDERCUT GAS PG_CKET small bead on the underside. If this is not done, insufficient penetration will result, as shown in figure 11. Be sure to clean each pass before laying on the next.
