    Everyone has their opinions. In the 10 years I've been welding I've never had anything break, and I've welded some big sh!t.

    Littlefuzz,

    I thought I remembered you from another site, then once I saw the closeups of your welds I knew I had. I saw the pictures of a custom rear bumper you put on a customers pickup a red Ford if I remember correctly. I believe you explained your weld as being done in a circular motion. It definately shows consistency and control on your part, it's just not my thing - I was trained differently. My GTAW and GMAW deposits are much tighter than that. My concern with your weld deposits being spaced so far apart it that you are in effect having stop/starts tied together in a chain. No offense intended to how you weld.

    Later,

    Default no offense meant

    Like the other guys I was just taught a different way than that of yours, everyone has there own way of doing things. Is your way any better or worse than ours, I can't say one way or the other for sure. Dave

    Yup that's me. Oh, that bumper has had a hay spear mounted into the receiver and hauled a bunch of those 5 x 6 round bales without budging.

    That's the one. I don't spend much time on that site, I'm too busy over here when I'm not working or travelling with the race cars. Thanks for the refresher Dewayne.

    littlefuzz, ditto what fusionking and dabar said. But, one of my bosses has a long arc legnth when he does 7018 that I didn't think was as strong, snuck one of his pieces out and did a bend test, was still flawless. Personally, teachers and bosses still prefer my mig welds be tighter together. BUT, DARN
    YOUR CONSISTENCY AND YOUR LINE IS SO DA&N STRAIGHT!!!

    I'll try to think to get some pics of some tighter beads. They aren't always spaced that far apart but still basically the same "stack of dimes" appearence.
