    Thank you for that info sir. That is funny you mention a Pancake, my welding instructor in HS knew I wanted to work on the pipeline, so for graduation he gave me a pancake kind of as a joke. What brand is most popular? I know there is a lot of "opinions," about the style pancake you have on the pipelines. The California guys get grief all the time about their style pancake...haha.

      7014?! Shoot, we have to run 7010 or the hyppe rod. 5p+ with a 5 for the root and hot pass depending on the the tester, then 3's all the way out.

      The Lincolns mentioned above are nice, ran the 300, and a Ranger 10 for a while, but the Pipe pro 304 is all that and then some. I have to do alot of mig and the Lincoln aren't as smooth and running 5p+ for the root.......its like butter!

          Every pipeline I've ever been on was either 8010 all the way out or 8010 bead 8018 out or 6010 7018. They haven't burnt hippy rod since I was a helper ...... Yeah I hate to say it unless you have a Lincoln on your rig set up pipeliner style they won't let you on the job .... Miller is frowned upon in the pipeliner world

              Well, Dr Pipe, here in Chicago our WPS states, 6010 root and can run that out if x42 and lower or 6010 root and run 7010 out up to x70. We don't have anything stronger than that. Really don't need being MAOP is 450. Population density dictates that, but out in Gods country, 1000 and up is the norm.

              We do use 80s d-2 in our mig guns. Were a little behind the times, still running the 19th edition API 1104.

              And not to start anything, but, all the pipepros that came through for quailification passes, can't say that about the Lincoln's, here. I know alot of the older guys love them salamanders, but after running mine, I'll never go back. Darn shame they stop building them!
