    Thumbs up Vertical - Up Welds !

    10 mm plate = .03937" or 25/64" ( a real thick 3/8").

    1.) 6013's are not a deep penetrating rod. Not really designed for vertical up grooves, as it has a rutile-potassium flux. Vertical up fillets, okay, & vertical down grooves.

    2.) your joint(s) should be beveled

    3.) Try a 3.2mm 6011 rod @ 90 amps until you get the hang of it. You can practice both vertical up & down.

    4.) gradually work your way to 90 degrees in progression. flat, 30, 45, 60, then 90, then over to 120 for a little overhead practice.

    5.) When you master that, than you can graduate to 7018's

    Hope this helps

    Norm: Thank you for the kind words, maybe something I should consider when I retire? (What's that?)

    Actually, Arizona does not change to "Daylight Saving Time" in the summer. Only the Northeast portion of the State, which is the "Navajo Nation," and Soveriegn Tribal land overlapping the "4 Corners" region changes time. So, in the Summer, we are the same as LA and Las Vegas, and in the winter, we are the same as Phoenix, wait, we are Phoenix!

    I have a bastian of atomic clocks and weather instruments that need reset every spring and fall, as most of them do not recognize Arizona's Summer Time. (Basically Hot)

    Isn't New Foundland or Nova Scotia 1/2 hour different from the Atlantic Time Zone? Now that, would really take some getting used to.

    Wasn't sure of the difference, didn't want to wake you up typing

    Actually, I've always wanted to visit your Country, some day. The many species of marsupials are unique to your land as Cacti are to Arizona.

    Glad we could help you.

    Keep us posted.

    Hi Dave;

    Yes, Newfoundland is 1/2 Hr. Later than Atlantic Time Zone !
    When It's 12:00 Noon here in Ontario ( EDT.) It's 1:00 PM. Atlantic Time Zone, and 1:30 PM. in Newfoundland. I think we here in Canada have Two More Time Zones than you have in the U.S.A. ?

    Yes Dave You would be an exellent Teacher !!!

    Default Au vs. Az

    Andy: Glad you found the "Forum." It's a lot of fun.

    I've got a couple of product guides from welding.au.com

    I'm going to familiarize myself with your "austarc" and "austmig" line of consumables so I can speak your language.

    WIA and Miller are featured. Is WIA your most popular, "domestic" brand?

    Stay in touch with us and keep us posted of your progress.

    Wishing you and your family a Happy Easter, "mate."
