Nice looking weld Gary.


Is this a joke? It's one student trying to help another out. If only I had the capabilities of contributing as much as you to this thread.

Appreciate the help everyone! On a 2 inch 6g test do most do cover passes in quarters or do u guys do 1/2 the pipe? I'm welding it in quarters.

I do about halfway on my easy side and then try to go over 1/4 on my hard side. Leaving me room to reposition so I can finish up the side and just over the top. Try to offset your start/stop points from one stringer to the next.
I have more questions than answers
