Personally I use either a flange and punch tool to do my holes which work out at 4.8mm or I use a 6mm drill but for harder to get at zones. Then use the welder to fill that in with weld and you can tell when it’s done just by the sound?
Use some scrap and have a play and make sure your getting good penetration. Giggity!

I use 0.6mm wire, turn the welder down low and increase wire speed and amps until it has a zzzzzzzzzzzz sound, a bit like bacon frying in a hot pan. as the others have said practice first until you are happy with it, mine has a spot weld timer setting but never us it. have fun and good luck

I use 0.6mm wire and use this technique all the time. Do make sure the material is firmly clamped together. You can use Zinc rich weld through primer.
DO NOT use low power for plug welding, you will get poor weak welds.
Different settings entirely though for seam welding.
