Andrew Cardin - Overhead 7018 5/32" Stick Welding Tee Joint
Andrew Cardin did the welding in this video while Jody handled the filming.
165 amps, arc force set to 10 using a Lincoln PowerMIG 210mp. We decided to use some leftover rods so that we show lots of restarts because being able to make a good restart is a fundamental skill... especially in overhe...
Andrew Cardin - Stick Welding an Open Root Plate with 7016 Electrode
Andrew's company is seeing welding procedures for open root 7016. Before tackling an open root pipe with 7016, some might benefit from a few practice plates. Fitup, featheriing tack welds, arc length, rod angle, are discussed.
Andrew Cardin - Overhead Round Tube to Plate with 5/32" 7018
Welding Overhead with 5/32" 7018 is a bit more challenging than with smaller electrodes but the same fundamentals apply for the most part.
Tight arc length, rod angle, and restarts are demonstrated with instructive arc shots and body positioning.
6013 stick welding tips for anyone in welding school trying to move on to 6010 and 7018...or who wants to build something and only has an AC buzz box welder.
6013 rods are designed to weld on DC or AC and it doesnt really matter much which one you choose.
Stick Welding Almost Overhead - Practice plate 7018 Fill and Cap
This plate is placed on a 45 degree to simulate that 4-5 o'clock area of a 5G pipe where things start to sag. Its not true overhead and not vertical either. But is a great practice plate leading to pipe
Overhead welding with a 7018 can be done at the same amperage used for flat or horizontal, or close to it. Set the machine hot enough so that it won't stick when you hold a tight arc, and then... hold a tight arc.
