Trade Tips

Tip of the Month
#348 One of the biggest problems welders have passing bend test and Visual is too much penetration or lack of fusion at the start and stopping points. If you pull out without falling back to the center of the tack you leave a key hole that you gotta deal with every time you start back or come up to during welding . Close the keyhole ALWAYS! Fall back to the center of the tack or at the end of the rod and there will be no key hole to fix you will not have to jack the rod to close the hole … if you do this you’ll get a “WEDDING BAND” and you will not be able to tell where you stopped and the tacks will look the same as the bead!
