Welding tricks, if you got the time.

Not only do you have to make ugly faces like he says but you gotta know which side of your mouth to hold your tongue.

 

Makes me wonder what inspired him to learn that particular skill. Hmmmm.

I went to a very good tech college to learn welding. The old instructor told us to watch the guy that seems to be wasting time a lot. he knows his ambient heat is approaching the top, and he's just waiting for the piece to cool a bit, before he applies the next pass. Ya got to do something whilst waiting...

Well, it's easy with 6011, I'd like to see him try it with 7018!  (grin)

Hi Judson Yaggy,

I'm using 7018. 3/32!! I can do it with 1/8 & 5/32. I can also do it with 1/4 Jet Weld welding rods. I have been doing that since I was a boilermaker welder in 1970 just out of the Navy. Great job!!!

Yep he's right!!! I watched the old timers when I was a young man.

The wheelchair and hospital bed are probably clues to how he came about perfecting this skill. I went through some occupational therapy several years ago and was really surprised with what they have you use to regain motion and dexterity.   

Was doing it back in the 70s when I was a boilermaker welder for CP&L & Duke Power. It's Duke Energy now. Best job I've had.

Is this a "seasoned welder" trick or something because I've never heard of it.  Kind of like stuffing Weld Kleen in a gas cup?  Theres lot of jokes you can play on the "new guy" but I've always found it more amusing and fun to help them and watch them learn.  Ticks off some of the old hands sometimes, but tough.  More power to u J.C.
