Re: Lets see them welds!!!

A Lobster boat exhaust made of stainless SCH10.
everything was layed out and welded on the bench from measurements taken on the boat. original exhaust went out the turbo and straight up but the Capt wanted to move it to the port side gunwale to make more room to work.
The original, also was not serviceable. This one has 3 custom machined stainless flanges which allow removal for servicing of engine and the flexpipe.




installed a Bung for an EGT gauge which also doubled as a purge fitting during assembly.






Different boat but here is a water mixing manifold i built for a generator which was also stainless.

Re: Lets see them welds!!!

Welded a steel rod across for support , and beefed up the corners on 2 of the week spots where they snapped on one of my OTC cab brackets.

Re: Lets see them welds!!!

This is a piece of 2" sch 40 iron pipe I just welded to the bottom (now top) of a propane tank being turned into a sandblaster. The welder is a Hobart Handler 210MVP running Hobart Flux core .030 E71T-11 with the welder set at 2 for the voltage and 20 for the feed rate on a 240volt circuit.
Any suggestions or pointers for improvement?

P.s. I am perfectly aware of the hazards of pressure vessels and propane tanks. This one was properly purged before beginning and will be hydro tested to 300 psi before being used as a blaster with a max working pressure of 100psi.

Practise your hand control. More steady hand and better weave.

Re: Lets see them welds!!!

Thank you, guess I'll need to grab some scrap pipe to practice on, flat, horizontal, and overhead pieces (no curve) I can do easy and have look good.

It did pass hydro, so all is good there. If I sounded defensive, it was because of what I saw(all these people saying how dangerous it is, which proper testing helps negate)when trying to find out how thick a propane cylinder end walls are.

Surprised to see this thread continued after my disappearance!!

I can honestly say I'm no longer a full time pipe welder after 19 years. I had my fill and cant stand the sight of pipe or fittings but still have the love for welding and fabrication, that'll be with me forever!! I started last year with a company that does mobile railcar maintenance are repair. I do though have a nice Miller w/ air pac combo on my work truck, still welding but only here and there.
Hopefully this thread isnt dead!!
