Howdy all,

I need to weld some 2X2X1/4 angle to the bottom of a 20 foot sched 40 3" pipe. I plan on using (2) 2 foot pices of angle with 1 foot welded and 1 foot hanging off the end. The two angle will be on the same end and I will butt weld where the two angles meet.

This is the bottom section of a 40 foot mast for a wind generator so the weld has to be strong. I plan on using my Lincon 225 stick welder because I do not think I can weld this with my Hobart Handler 140 with gas. I think it may work with flux core but I do not want to change back.

What is the bet way to get max penetration where the edge of the angle meet the pipe? Should I use a thick 6011 and high amperage?

Ant help advice would be appriciated
