    My favorite type of thread.
    I can learn about how others present their case,
    and I have no skin in the game.

    Always and never are adverbs? that I consider red-flag.........
    But!

    I like this one.

      I had no base for that post, I just concluded that he was on the first pass so I thought it was wrong. It does not seem like much effort went into solving the problem.

      It sounds like bull**** all around.

        I am not a professional that's for sure, learning something every day but i have to agree with Mikecwik in that you need to weld uphill if possible because you will get good penetration and a better looking weld. The pipeline welders are an exception because they have no choice but to weld the tension side of the joint first (engineered to be this way) and they are very good at weld puddle control and travel speed. I have always been told to weld up with stick from very good welders but i do understand downhill can be done. Oh i find it very interesting that the welders in the you tube video's are weaving as quickly as they are.

          down hill welding

          not a certified welder never will be but have read these threads for years and have been told personally that my down hill welds wont hold. i have a neighbor with an old backhoe the boom for the front bucket broke in two. i welded it back together down hill because i couldnt weld up hill. a certified welder walked by and said it would never hold and i would be run off from company he worked for. this friend with backhoe can tear up an anvil with a rubber hammer he hasnt been able to break it in over 30 years. no this is not a brag it just worked for me.

            Yep sounds good to me. Glad its holding. It sure is nice when you fix something and years later you see it still working.
