        Perhaps not a common problem, but possible, and for some types of jobs it will be common. Especially when starting a bead to join two pieces that aren't yet really connected well anywhere, the arc will greatly favor the side of the joint that has the work lead. Jumpering the two sides of the joint will give you a much more balanced arc.

        There may be other types of arc blow issues that can be helped with this, but that was just off the top of my head.

        Many machines will have a relatively short work lead, compared to sometimes hundreds of feet of stinger lead. You may be working on a sign or a pipe or something that can be connected to the short work lead next to the machine, while you are much further away and want to strike your arc on a piece that isn't yet connected to the sign or pipe that you are on the other end.
