New to forge welding

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! New to forging and forge welding. Wondering if these are weld failures or is this the way the sides just look after welding. It was a 7 layer billet folded once of bandsaw blades and wood cutting skill saw blades. Thanks

I believe if those run all the way through the piece it means the weld didn't take completely. Although it does seem you got a start at it. Someone more experienced will need to say for sure though. I'm in the same boat, trying to learn to forge weld as well as of late.

Just noticed it says you're in WV, what part if you don't mind me asking.

Can you polish it and etch so we can tell if they are cracks or weld lines---probably from decarb.
