I have a problem with the following situation: I have to weld a L shape 4”x 10” , 5/16” thick and 6” wide to the bottom part of a W 16x50 25 l.f. which thickness of the flange is 5/8” and wide is 10.25”, is not flush, 5” deep. The rod have to burn the ceiling of this flare-bevel joint and the rounded corner of the flat bar or plate, I think 2 passes would be reasonable, the first overhead to get a lower ceiling and start to close the gap of this joint and the second or third a little horizontal to get a good bond with a 1/8” 7018 rod at 140 amperes. The gap is 1/2" and deep is like 1/4" I’d like to listen commentaries. The diagram tells a lot. Thanks in advanceFLARE BEVEL JOINT GROOVE-NELSON-ACADEMY BEAM W16X50-DETALLE-EXPORT 2D.jpg
