thats cool, might have to make me one of those. Here is a picture of a boat my grandpa made (he has made about 30 of them) and the one that I made modeled after his.



and here is a truck that I made real quick killing some time in metal sculpting class...

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

That boat sir is badass! puts my helicopter to shame haha.

truck is pretty sweet, i may have to try it since we basically have nothing to do in class besides weld/work on projects.

Thanks, I was nervous the whole time building it since I built it for my grandpa and his ships that he builds are the best I have ever seen, not bad for a guy that has built so many during his 80's and 90's.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

6g on pipe. Ive only been on it 2 weeks, so that like 12 hours or so. Cap isnt as straight as it needs to be, and the root has some undercut, but oh well. thought id finally contribute to this thread. Pictures turn out like shit in my booth, and i never remember to get a good pictures with a decent camera once i get home. Oh, and this is all stick welds, and some of the bullshit on the root is slag.



rod angle was shitty, i keep wanting to lift my damn elbow when i come up around the pipe. practice practice practice lol

6g can be a little challenging at first but I'm sure it will come together for you. 6010 the root and the rest 7018? Why not weave the cap? Stingers will do the job but no matter how nice I'll always prefer watching the slag lift off a 7018 pass in one piece to expose a nice weave.

yep, 6010 root and the rest 7018. THe cap is stringers b/c thats what they want. The course is based around local the local plant industry, and thats just how they do it. A weaved cap is a lot cleaner IMO too.

we weren't allowed to do a weave on anything in WA, but way to many welds went without getting inspected (which was nice so that I didn't have to sit and wait for a inspector) and most of the weld inspections were done by one company that had inspectors that really didn't know what they were doing, so a good amount of people got away with doing weaves. Only the really good contractors got the good inspectors who cost $$ but were also certified in everything and have tons of welding experience. No one seemed to check for undercut either which irritated me except when getting x-rayed.

That's really strange. My teacher was a certified inspector for AWS and let us run stringers as an option second to weaving a cap. The class was pretty damn critical but was also a joke at times when it came to book work. I'm surprised to hear your course let you get away with things like undercut, I would expect that they would be strict being up north where there is a higher demand for skilled welders.

I'm surprised to hear your course let you get away with things like undercut, I would expect that they would be strict being up north where there is a higher demand for skilled welders.
We learned to do the weave at welding school, and my instructor for my course was very very strict on undercut. He didn't like to see any. Once he got to know you and your welding ability, he would hold you to a certain standard, so for the better welders, he didn't want any undercut. For the guys/girls that weren't as good, he would let them get away with the legal amount. When doing a test for certification he would always do the legal amount for everyone. Out on the job site though, I saw tons of welds from other welders that were horrible, tons of undercut, nasty looking welds. But a lot of it didn't get inspected. The larger structural stuff of course did, but I saw welds that got inspected and passed because the inspector would only look at a couple them and then pass them all. but on some jobs there were so many welds and they wouldn't call in a inspector so they would get away with a lot. Of course I didn't always get along with the inspectors so my stuff seemed to get a closer look, no worries though.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

Our instructor is the same way, once he knows you have what it takes to be a welder, he stays on you about it being perfect. We can weave for some stuff. Vertical welds are weaved. Just horizontal welds and these on a 45* angle are a 3 stringer cap

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

I just thought I would add we dont do weaves on east coast canada, but all the pipe welders that I talk to, from the west coast say they do it all the time out there. they get x rayed all the time too.
they are always complaning about it too because stringers take longer

the thought behind it is there is a much larger chance of slag inclusions with the weave but just like alot of things it dosent mean its actuly going happen, if done properly.


beandip
it took me quite a long time get consistant with out resting my arms on the table.
thats looking really good.

its hard to see is it a horizontal fillet?
or lap lol my eyes must be going its hard to tell

for the longest time I used to press my elbows in to my sides and rest it on my hip bone to keep them steedy
if that makes sense. thats a bad habit too because your arms get tired fast and your not always in to a position to do that. kind of cheating lol

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

Meh, just practice, you can also try to see how fast you can go, sorta helped me coordinate my hands.

I decided to mount my vice today. i had this little sucker for 7 months (buddy gave it to me) and i have just been slacking on mounting it. so mount was real simple, nothing special. just 2 3" square tubing butted together side by side, then welded to the table.

still has a low spot in the middle, but i took the opportunity to experiment.


little freehand weave. one corner, dab, shoot to the other corner, dab, and repeat.


basically looks like walking the cup, but minus the walking or steadiness lol. but meh, i'm happy with it. first time really doing something like this besides a simple dab.


it filled that low center spot nicely.


I didnt have any bolts that were the correct size in length, and honestly didnt feel like drilling holes. so i did the obvious choice. small circular items like this is a challenge for me.



probably get some plastic caps for the end. but it works for what i need to do with it. Vice is pretty light duty, but would work great to just hold stuff or press things in. really cant beat on it with a 8 lb sledge, but my table casters cant handle that abuse, already bent and had to replace one lol.

He has a lot of good videos. Just search under him for whatever you need tig related. He has videos covering machine settings too. Plenty of good arc shots and he explains in good detail.

It surprises me that they allow it in some areas and don't in others. You would think that they wouldn't allow it anywhere if they thought it wouldn't be good enough. I guess if you pass a x-ray you pass. Still though, we were always told it was a no go to do it on a job. Drove me crazy if one of my helpers tried to do it on a job, even if I knew it wasn't getting inspected (don't think any of the stairs and landings we put in ever got inspected), I didn't like to see it any time.

beandip, welds are look good, I would love to pick up TIG again and get more efficient with it. Hopefully soon I will be able to get a TIG welder for the home, I don't like to always use MIG for everything, would be nice to have TIG for smaller projects.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

I dont mind running stringers on a cap. That might change once i get out in the field though.

Hopefully tuesday ill be off of stick welding. My last few 6g welds have came out really damn good. If all goes well tuesday, ill be onto to TIG. Really excited. Even if im on this 6g stick a little longer, its really bad ass feeling having made it this far. I need to get a few pics of my root pass. I wish my camera on my phone was worth a damn to get some shots in class.

and beandip, that last bracket on that knuckle looks really good.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

sticking with some of the art work side of things, here are a couple other things I did real quick in metal sculpting class. The camaro one is just done with a plasma, the blazer was cut with a plasma, then used weld to highlight features and also took some sheet metal and welded it on to give it the driving over rocks effect....

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

yes sir, I used a projector with a picture of both the blazer and camaro, then put the sheet of metal on the wall and traced the main lines. the blazer actually worked out better than i thought, once I plasma cut the blazer out, the warping made it come away from the main metal sheet by a inch, so it made it look like it was popping out of the sheet better. I loved working with metal in that class, just wish I had a shear and plasma at home.

Hot damn dude! How much chang$ did you end up dropping on this? I use a syncrowave 300dx at work for 95% of my welding and a dynasty 300dx for all my code welding and a millermatic 350p for all my wire feed welding. Have you tried your pulser function? It helps A LOT with any welds you run especially aluminum.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

Spend just $4700 on it.


I played with the pulse functions a lot. it really helps out if you want to bridge a big gap from poor fitment. On aluminum it works pretty good too, but i learned to weld without it really. at first the pulse helped me learn to dip in rhythm until i built my skills enough.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

Thanks and if I only knew how to tig. You are getting them bumpers down pat pretty well. always putting out nice work when you do something.


Edit: I need to find out how tig always has that fish scale to it.

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

Thanks.

never heard it called fish scale before. What i did on my 3/4" mount was a basket weave, or similar to walking the cup. in my case, i just free-hand the same motion.

You want to see some out of position welding. Got this on of my old boss welding a part of the cage I couldn't get.

And that's on the rear fender of this....

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

Nice!

i did one just like that on an outboard motor on a boat. the bottom fin (forgot what its called) snapped off and i welded it back (aluminum).

i was laying on my side, welding with my left hand, with my left foot working the pedal that was leaning against a cinder block vertically. had to do that on both sides (but one side i welded with my right hand). weld turned out pretty good, solid at least .

Re: post up some pics of your welds.

^ those parts were cast STEEL, much different than cast IRON.

cast steel works the same as mild steel does. i gave it a little preheat, but only because the parts were thick, not because of the cast. most people just MIG those brackets on and call it a day.
