© COPYRIGHT 1998 THE ESAB GROUP, INC. LESSON II Electrical Stick-Out -  In any welding process using a solid or flux cored wire, the electrical stick-out is the distance from the contact tip to the unmelted electrode end.  Sometimes called the "amount of wire in resistance".  This distance influences melt-off rate, penetration, and weld bead shape. Out-of-Position Welds -  Welds made in positions other than flat or horizontal fillets. Weld Positions - FLAT HORIZONTAL  FILLET VERTICAL OVERHEAD HORIZONTAL BUTT POSITIONED  FILLET (FLAT)
