Lets see them welds!!!

I guess this trend can work in 2 ways, (1) to show off your talent in welding. in Brazing from (TB) torch brazing to (DB) Dip Brazing, gas welding (OAW) oxy-acetylene welding or arc welding like (SMAW,"Stick") sheilded metal arc welding (FCAW) Flux cored arc welding (GMAW,"MIG") Gas metal arc welding, or (GTAW,"TIG") Gas tungsten arc welding. Or any other processes you may know. But please make it your own!! Not trying to make this a contest. (2) If your learning, Don't be shy by all means!! I train guys and work, and I've seen them all. I'm a Certified welder with certs in SMAW, GMAW, GTAW (orbital TIG) and SAW. Some of us can tell just by looking at the weld, If it's too hot, too cold, not hot enough, or just wanting to learn diffrent weld procedures. Just need to know what kind of welder you have, type of wire (0.30 0.35) for wire feeders, and gas type for MIG, and if it's Flux cored. Rd type for SMAW or just take a pic of your welder set-up, heck it would be neat to see them to. I'll try to post some pics tommorow. Hope this turns out as planned.

Well,I have been a welder/inspector/etc,,for going on 40 years and I don't have time to send you a picture of a weld. You should post a picture of some pipe welds[you welded] welded in 6g,close ups of the bottoms and root,[if they are coupons],overhead plates,etc,than let us examine them for you.

Re: Lets see them welds!!!

Now not picking on you really,just being contrary I guess.

Anyways,did you all know that being a certified welder means little?

I'll explain,to become certified as a welder,means you have taken a welding test and a company has passed you on that test,test was done to code/specs or something like that.

Now,there are all kinds of tests,any where from a tacker test flat,to a 45 degrees fixed postion pipetest,that is bent,or x-rayed.

There are many different welding processes as the man explained a little above,now you could be certified with mig only,and than only with mig flat on a fillit weld. So,that certification would just be good for flat mig fillit welds,the individual may have never even seen a stick rod or might think you light a tig torch,but he would be certified,a certified welder!

Now not talking about you,ihcubguy,you are probably as slick as they come,just explaining to some who have heard that term,certified welder,and never really thought about what it could mean really.

Also,certification is not good for life,and will be no good,if you havn't been working and proving you still got the skill with the company[companies],that certified you.[eyes get bad,bellies get bigger,and hands sometimes shake more].
I have many old cert papers,keep them for their memories you might say,but they ain't worth nothing now. And couldn't pass most of same tests now if I was given the chance by some company to take them.

Eyes wore out,belly is bigger,hands shake a little more,etc,plus I've been out of the rod burning business for a while,been inspecting for many years,off and on.Thats the way it works with most things that you use your body for,look at poor ole lance earnhardt today,what is he,35 or something? and that tour de france ate him up today,he's over the hill.

Re: Lets see them welds!!!

Now that we have the cert.thing out of the way, lets see some welds! We have alot of guys that are taking welding class's and some that are trying to learn on their own and I am sure they would like to have some input from those of us that would know how to help them out!

That would be cool to see Aaron! Closest I ever came to welding underwater was in pouring down rain storms!

Re: Lets see them welds!!!

ThkU for the thread - but I guess someone has to start with a picture.
(one of those things, a picture is worth a 1000 words)

I welded up the following coupon, in College, back in the mid 1970's.
Using DC stick welding - 7018 rod // 3/8" mild steel
The double start was manditory, to simulate a repair.

I got an "A" grade after a second coupon was cut in half and acid etched without inclusions.
Feedback much appreciated !!

Re: Lets see them welds!!!

Your two cover stringers,they should lap each other more,the top bead should be half way down on bottom bead,in other words.

Your root bead looks bigger than your two covers,instead of two cover beads over root you should have run three beads.Bottom,than one on top of it,covering about half,than one on top.
Or,you coulda just run the two,but carried a little more metal.

Plus you try not stop beads in same spot,you stagger the starts and stops if possible

Re: Lets see them welds!!!

Well,you never start or stop on corners,that causes cracks.And looks like your joint was a little crooked before you welded it,and maybe you was running a little cold,little ropy looking,need to flaten it and widen cover a little.

I'm starting to have fun.
