  • Vertical Welding SMAW

    Wondering if anyone knows any good manipulation techniques for 6010 groove welds in vertical uphand, 3/8 to 1/2" weld size.

    Whip and pause... It's a fast freeze rod

      I am asking for weave techniques for 3/8 to 1/2" welds i understand it is fast freeze

        I'm assuming the root and hot passes are already in. I don't think I ever weaved 6010 on those size welds in the vertical with 1/8 6010 rod. I just jump from side to side hesitating on the sides long enough to wash in and let the metal settle in the middle by itself. You are only suppose to weld 3X the diameter of the rod technically.

          Why would you weave it? There are other rods for that what's the project

            My manipulation technique is to put down the 6010 and pull some 7018 from the oven

                Haha, unfortunately I have to weave 6010 for class... i guess 5/32 rod might fill better, i would weave 7018 if it was up to me. Atm it is open corner 3g 1/2" plate, 1' long. for the test there is two fit ups, one is 6010 root and 7018 hot,fill and cap, and the other is all 6010. must be nick tested at 3,6,9 on both weldments
