There was plenty of heat, I was just using the wand like I would a stick welder to get that effect....
Thanks rrg. I do work in a piping fab plant. Everything was rolled in the pics, for the exception of the (orbital) TIG, We conform to B31.1-B31.3, Level III X-ray is a level III read, film must be read by a level III tech. It's not a company thing, we are required by the code depending on what it's used for, high pressure steam line to jet fuel, cold water return or supply. I have to weld in position 50% of the time. (weld-o-lets, vess-o-lets, TEEs, pipe too big for my positioner) typical...SMAW 6010/7018, and TIG on socket welds, carbon and stls. I'm not bragging, or pulling this out of my ***, but i can't remember the last time i had a repair, it's been a long time. if thats what you wanted to know about how i am at welding in position.Well,those are good looking welds,you must work in a pipe fab shop?
Everything was rolled ,right?[know the sub arc was],..
What is a level III x-ray?,heard of x-rays,heard of level III x-rayers,,but never a level three x-ray,,,must be a company thing??
How are you at welding pipe in postion?
I'm the type of person to over do it, I would bevel the egdes, making a wide V groove, and run 2 or 3 stringers side by side, grinding half into the first and sec passes with a 1/8" grinding wheel, or run one pass uphill. I like to smooth out the welds, but not making it flush to the pc. when it comes to painting, unles it was TIG welded. I know i know to each his own.There was plenty of heat, I was just using the wand like I would a stick welder to get that effect....
It's only going to be used as a front bumper, weight bracket, and plow frame. It'll hold!
Try your cap like that, looks cool when painted.
