Hillbillysmith Posted February 22, 2010 Share Posted February 22, 2010 Has anyone ever heard of "buddy welding"? It's supposed to use one stick machine but they split the electrode lead into 2 stingers and 2 guys weld on it at once but not at the same time. It's where 1 guy welds one half of the pipe at a time. Say guy a welds from 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock and guy b weld the oppostie side. while guy a is welding his side, guy b is cleaning the slag from his side and when guy a get to his finishing point (which is guy b's starting point) guy b catches the arc from guy a. This keeps goin around and around until the pipe is finished. So, in short, 1 guy is always welding and 1 guy is always cleaning. - hillbilly Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
