Re: post up some pics of your welds.

You got some undercut and what not in there. but looks pretty good tho. I assume your running spray looking at your weld and equipment ( when else do you need a drum of wire ha). So what are you making in the photo?

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

Self taught but i have confidence in my welds.

i didnt weld that crappy one on the edge of the corner but the rest was me.
its a hinge for a fence with a bit of undercut.


There can be some improvement here.


welded in my bolt in notch, i should have done an uphill weld but i dont have too much practice doing that technique so i did a downhill instead, from what i hear it doesn't penetrate as much.



either way i have seen worse lol. always looking for ways to improve my welds, its something i take pride in, especially on a vehicle when suspension is involved.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

I had some undercut for sure, needed to run a stringer first. Its a coupler for a front end loader, the part that hooks to the bucket, We make all sorts of heavy construction stuff where I work. Coupler area is the best, always a different piece, lots of turns, not just a bunch of 10ft long welds, some multi pass welds too. Spray transfer is the shit, besides the heat it puts off.


bean dip they look good, I am self taught. A lot of guys I work with that are welders are self taught, most of them actually. Makes me feel good when I weld something that looks better than a guy who went to school and has been doing it longer.

I guess no one welds with rods that often. I do quite a bit of stick welding at work. I'll see if I can grab some pics someday lol.

You got a job as a welder, doing structural welds on heavy equipment with no prior welding experience at all, on the job or otherwise? Please tell me what company you work for so I can avoid it.

That looks like a robotic welder. More pics?

In the other thread you said you worked in the grinding department.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

you want even lapping close lapping.. together keeping the molten pool going with small circles like chevy power's. I love love love metal. Love the smell of welding and cutoff saws and plasma cutting.. I grew up round the shit. Something that if you are not around or don't know about.. wouldn't know about. Good looking welds, and a great thread!

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

well i passed mine. but all you have to do for mig is a 6in vertical up pulsed spray weld which consists of 3 passes. and it costs 85 dollars for the certification plate. im pretty sure that there is a seperate one for mig welding aluminum also.

Welded with a lincoln 170. I am self taught too.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

ill throw a few up.

308 Stick rods, on 5/8" steel plate. Dont ask why i used a stainless rod on carbon steel. Was just doing what i was told. I tried talking them into letting me use a 7024, but nope. 308 it was. stupid considering the rest of the assembly was done with a 7024 or 7018.






Some mig work on a frame i was building for a hardbody. Still haven't finished it yet.









Some tig aluminum passes i made when i first got my tig welder


some beer cans that needed to be welded together:

is that for all position or just a shop weld cert? for mine i did 6 inch i believe, vertical and over head but that was for a all position structural certification, no pulsed spray, thats how it is in washington.

i always love reading these "lets see your welds" topics. interesting to see what the opinions are of people and how they say the welds are suppose to look like. or the fact that some people learn at big name places and just assume that they know everything and weld "right"

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

I took four year of welding in school, been welding since I graduated. There are some pretty nice welds in these pictures but don't forget guys, clean up those frames before you go to welding. Aside from that looks good guys.

Probably talking about mine

i did clean the frame, clean bare metal but i left the chassis saver paint just outside of the weld area. i should have cleaned it further but at the time believed that was enough. but trust me though, the frame was clean before welding, ie. shiny bare metal.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

there are a lot of really nice welds in here, Im almost scared to post mine. I was stripping the primer off my truck frame last night (getting ready to put chassis saver on it) and i took a few pics of my mig welds.

CUNSTRUCTIVE criticism is welcomed.
Dude...get some better pictures of this joint...more clear on this angle, a shot looking at the side, and one towards the back of the c-channel.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

why did he use C channel i would have used square stock and bolted my bags to that and why did he put it on top the frame and not in the frame. i have not bagged a s10 like that but im guessing its just to get a lower ride not for looks.

It looks like there's another piece of channel underneath it too so dropping it inside the frame would give the same result right? I don't have a bagged ride. Just making an observation

i think he cut the c channel and welded it together to bolt the bags to their just seems to be a lack of planing. I myself like to plan for about a week to make sure its as best as it can be and look super sweet when done.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

You mean like with a radius around the axle and where it meets the frame? Not too much you can do to get to creative unless you back half it. Just my $.02

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

based on it being a load bearing structural member with incurred compound stresses, there is only so much that can be done with the actual design...

i think this is a well desgined c-notch/backhalf so far. creative with the crossmembers instead of just using 1.5" tubing.
