Hey my name is jason and im new to this site. Im very passionate about welding mainly becuase i learn something new everyday. I have a feeling that I will never stop learning in the welding trade one way or another. My question to all you pipe welders out there ... is what are the variables in the field ... things like like gap and land and arc force ... I just went through my level B welding and i was welding schd 40 pipe with a 1/8 gap in the vertical up possition 3G and land and couldnt get the hang of it ... i have a feeling it had to do with my arc force cranked up to 100 % but my insturctor insisted i leave it at 100 % it wasnt untill i seen someone else weld with really nice penetration and i asked him ... how did you do that /? he replied i have my arc force at 40 or 50 % ... if anyone has any tips on welding pipe i would be interested to know ... im also looking for work in northern bc ... if anyone knows whats going on up there hit me back on that too ... keep your hood down
