The Art of Field Welding Repair
The temptation, when stuck in the middle of a job site with unbearable heat and a tight deadline, may be just to throw a quick weld on a piece of twisted metal and hope for the best. Hope it gets you through the day. But maybe you didn’t properly prepare the joint? Did you cut out the failed material or did you just pile on filler metal, hoping for the best? Do you have the right equipment?
