    Default Pics of what I do at work

    I'm gonna attempt to post some pics of my welding at work. I had to hand weld for a few days as my orbital welder has been tore up . It's good to hand weld once in awhile so I don't lose my hand. This is 347 stainless with the root's welded at 78 amps then I turn my heat up to 86 to fill and cap.I walk my root and second pass then free hand the rest. I'm sure your wondering why freehand , well you can carry ALOT more metal free handing than walking the cup on small o.d. tubing like this. I refer to this type of welding I do as the good ole "hot flop". I just throw it on there and we don't try to make every weld a masterpiece , just not enough time for the pretty stuff. Save the pretty for the weld booth. These welds pass x-ray and thats the bottom line.

    Showdog75,

    It does not appear that having to watch the robot has not diminished your manual skills..........good job. What are the end products you manufacture at work??

    Well I've been feeling like folks on this forum think your full of bs if you don't back up what you preach with some pics.So I had to put up or shut up. I've always been intimidated when it comes to posting pics but I think I've got it figured out finally. Thanks for the compliment. I tend to take for granted what I do at work because it's all I know but feel like I have alot to be proud of when I see newby's struggling with the basics. I'm here to learn like everyone but also willing to share any knowledge I have with whomever is willing to sift through my bs.

    I don’t think anybodies doubted your abilities, I know the thought has never crossed my mind! You always give top notch advice, you’ve helped me in the past, and I appreciate it immensely!
