It’s not up to scratch. Simple!
There’s nothing wrong with being a beginner welder but there’s a lot wrong with being a beginner welder and charging a customer for it. If it was given to me I’d be throwing it out and doing it myself. There’s no fusion in those welds they’ll be as weak as a...
It’s a radiation burn from the UV rays of the arc.
While higher currents and pulse arcs are far more potent and cause more harm during exposure it’s a lot more common to see people suffer with lower current less potent processes.
Reason being they are far more comfortable to be around so...
Getting there isn’t it. :thumbup:
now watch that undercut...... keeping the arc very tight and keeping the fill going in should clear it up.
Its not critical work so a few tungsten inclusions ain’t gonna harm while trying to keep that arc nice and tight.
Who said anything about £6000 machines. who mentioned money at all.
a cooler can be as simple as a pump and a bucket.
Everyone can justify it when true understanding becomes apparent.
Torch consumable parts last 10x longer for a start.
it’s very much misunderstood just what’s involved...
Well that was an enjoyable read.... shame it’s spoilt by parm & screwd not being able to leave each other alone for 2 minutes!!!!!!
Seriously gents go and slap each other outside. Your killing these threads!!
How on Earth you’ve avoided pre mod is beyond me. Mods obviously getting soft!
I see where your going with it Tom and I don’t entirely disagree but learning to weld and getting the results Does require a level of comfort especially starting out. Reducing torch weight and heat build up followed by increasing flexibility will drastically reduce fatigue.
Even at expert level...
You don’t need a pulse. You don’t need a gas lense. You don’t need 10-12 lpm
mismatched material thickness needs to be set to the thicker piece. In your case 5mm.
You concentrate the arc on the thicker piece and as you reinforce it with filler you let it wet onto the thinner section. Your fit...
You’ve got contamination problems
You need to cure these before going any further forward. if you are getting black speckles in your welded bead you need to find out what is causing that........ then move on to learning how to weld.
you mentioned in your settings you were using a base...
And me. there is some good runs in there and I see a bit of attention has been paid to some of those craters too. Nice.
id probably look at doing some common joints before attacking your headers.
Stand a few fillets up and see if you can make a nice job of them.
