Keep practicing, you will get there. Getting the current set right and your speed during the weld is critical. The puddling, if done well, will sort of set the speed of movement automatically as you get familiar with it.

You need some scraps of stainless about the same thickness as you are going to weld in anger
stainless is very much different from steel to weld --infact I find stainless much easier --but I was taught how to weld on Stainless

good Luck
