Lap joints

Postby Don507 » Wed Sep 20, 2017 12:48 am

Hello,

I am new to welding. I am now doing lap joints for a pull up test. I am using 7018 1/8". My question is what makes a strong weld? Is there a way to make the weld stronger? I did one for my first time and the result was about 8700. It is a single-fillet lap joint and the diameter is 1".

Thank you!
