  • Passed my first bend test

    I passed my first bend test! No cracks or any weld defects, just a nice, perfect bend. I'm very pleased.

    The specimen in the picture was taken from a coupon of 1" plate that I welded as an open root V butt in the 2G position. The root pass was done with 6010, and then the hot pass and the filler was done with 7018. The root pass was gouged out with air-carbon arc and then welded back in with 7018.

    3 specimens were taken from the coupon, they all passed.

        This past week I finally got around to bend testing some of my 3G and 4G 7018 open root butt plates and they passed too.
