Anybody work where there is such a thing.... I know that if you need to back weld something it should be done before the fill .... But every once in a while even a good pipe welder will get a lil. Ip. In a root .... No if you've already welded it out I see no reason to grind through a weld to touch up an 1/8 inch of ip on the root when you can reach inside and get it..... Well there was a new qc around today. And we went round and round about this. I hate to say it but some of the welders I work with need to back weld to make it we were told to cut out four welds because they had touch ups .... I being the golden crusader of welding that I am I jumped to there defense. I stated ( hey qc dude you want this guy to grind through a good cap and dig down to a root on schedule forty pipe. That's bullshi. T cause it's so thin even backwelding heats it up enough to blue the cap so it's getting a even temp all the way threw. ). I say if you can see it backwelding it. No wonder gas costs so much with all this bull going on day in and day out .... So yeah I can't believe we would need to make a backwelding procedure that will probably cost us ten grand or more. Any thoughts pipers
