    Hi all,
    Just writing in to say be careful and don't do what I did.
    I was witnessing the welding of some test pieces for EN 9606-1, and for got to tell the welders to do a stop and start on both the root and capping run.

    Take it easy on me, it's my first time doing this.
    Anyway, here are the details:
    Joint type-T-joint with edge prep 40°
    Weld type-Butt-partial pen
    Material-15mm plate
    PA position.
     
  2. Bet they were pleased when they had to re do the tests, you could always tell them it's all good practice, we all make mistakes so wouldn't lose any sleep over it

    I Forgot to do the stop/start in a test once. Multirun butt.
    He'd even marked where he wanted it with a chalk line.

    Flipped my headshield up, matey picked it up and said, "wow, thats great, perfect pen all the way along....your stop/start is so good, I cant even see it.":ashamed::laughing:

    Yes they were thrilled lol. The machinist was upset because I got him to re-machine the edge prep back onto the re-cuts. Didn't lose any sleep myself though.

    Just trying to give a heads up Brad93, in case of the far-fetched possibility there are people on this forum that make mistakes some days.
