    Default my 6g root

    I have a 5'' sch 80 6g test tomorrow for ammonia pipe welding. I havnt had a pipe test in years so i had to practice alot.. this was my first piece. Did this with a maxstar 150 6010 5P+ downhill. I am more comfortable laying my roots downhill and they said it was fine.

    Well ****... ya better go stop the downhill pipeline welders. Ive done both uphill and downhill and i can tell ya downhill is a lil bit more challenging. N by the way the dude that told me downhill was ok turned out to be wrong so i put the root in up.
