    When running a 6010 root uphill on sch. 80 2" pipe, what is the rod angle and do you just push the rod or step it just like downhill? Thanks

      Wow, 8 whole hours... or maybe people just sleep at night.

      But surely busting our hump for not replying fast enough to suit you will get people off the dime!

        If you posted it in the right category (General Welding Questions) you might have better luck.

          Number one,you don't step a 6010 root in down hill,,you drag it,,you gap it less,less land,you push it in to root,,burn hotter,,etc.

          But its hard to say how the exact way to run a root in up hill is,,cause everybody is different,[just depends on how you learn],I never was a pipefitter or boilermaker,,started out downhilling,,,and when I started learning up,,gapped it about same and basicly drug it up instead of down,, but thats not how most do it,,gap/land is very important,as well as heat,,thingy
