    Default The best of the worst thread.

    After watching the welding video posted by welderman23, I got an idea for a worst of the worst thread. Maybe if it takes off we could make it a sticky?

    This thread will be nothing more than a what not to do kinda post. I'll start off with several of the fine items that have shown up at my door in the past or a few others that I have seen.

    1st pic's are a repair job on a dump truck tailgate

    Here's the pic's of a guy that was looking for a job, said he had something like twenty years of experience building trailers. Well here's his test welds. These were 6011 and 6013 rods.

    Default the worst of the worst

    Holy cow did you say some one tried to weld this or did they throw hot molten metal at it hoping it would stick to it? what on earth is this person doing with a welding whip in there hand? trying to weld some thing like that and thinking its a good job or it will do for now? I hope who ever did these welds DO NOT WELD FOR A LIVING? because they will starve to death from lack of work or law suits because of work. Have you got any more pics like this one?(lol) this kind of stuff cracks me up.

    Ha,ha,ha what the heck is he testing for? how much of a gap from weld bead to actuall part is needed or some thing more technically challenged(lol) can this guy teach me to be this good, I think I can really weld with some good teaching methods.

    DANG - LOL, I better go check my trailers that I bought before I started welding, hope he didn't have a hand in them.

    Maybe he meant his job was putting the boards on the deck.

    hey hey
    i could do better than that with silly putty, wire coat hanger and a 9volt battery


    .........this reminds me of my old boss ,he would say to hurry up by cranking up the amps/volts ,and "burn in" the rods. And we put up structural steel !!!!!!
