>>
>>722956631
i weld HEB beams most of the time.
>>
I've used a soldering iron a few times on some electronics.
>>
>>722956591
According to the moron in the other welding thread you should quit because robots gonna took yer job
>>
MIG TIG or GTAW, OP?
>>
>>722956591
Well there seems to be a fucking hole in the top one, might want to get that sorted.
>>
>>722956591


Honestly just practice. I remember being so frustrated trying to figure out how to Tig aluminum, but the more you do it you start noticing things that that start to click.

Another helpful resource is welding tips and tricks channel on YouTube. That guy does a fantastic job of showing you proper techniques and settings and explaining why he does it that way.

But seriously just practice. You'll get better

>a fucking hole
I wouldn't stick *my* dick in there. You got a funny kink, Anon.
>>
>>722956591
Turn up your heat. Watch the puddle, not the arc. Whip or circle your rod. Welds with 60xx electrodes should look like a flat line of coins.
Practice.

Tig is GTAW, dumb fuck

what the fuck? do they not have schools in your shitty country?

How do you become a welder without having taken welding in highscool (i think this is the anglo equivalent? age 13-18)
>>
>>722959290
i started as a regular digger on the site and they took me under their protectorate and teach me to weld while i work, which is a great practice, dipshit.
>>
>>722957961
Two stupid fucks that know nothing of welding weld with a 7018 on Dc at about 95 amps on 1/inch plate make sure the sides of the beads are level with the metal and the middle stands up little bit , Tig is the cleanest but hardest welding. when welding for the first couple times don't put any motion into it just drag the tip of the 7018 about 1/16 inch off the plate and if it blows through turn down the amps.

>>722959487
Hope you don't weld anything structural, unschooled dig nigger.

>>722956591
1: Don't be fucking terrible at your job

>>
>>722959836

Suck a rocky mountain goat's dick.

G and T are a long fucking ways away from S and M on the keyboard.

>>722956591
Keep your eyes on the puddle, watch ur toe line, stick out should roughly be the diameter of the rod your using, whip and pause motion, after each weld clean slag so you don't get contamination in ur welds, also if ur outdoors have something to block the wind from you weld if your stick welding flux acts like a shielding gas. knock out the shielding gas u got porosity. Also when there's slag you always drag

What size electrode do you use on 2 to 3 mm thick metal beams ?

I worked in a glass factory when I was 15/16 (work experience) and shit, my welds were better lmao.

The guys told me practise makes perfect- they also let me write my name in weld when I got good. That helps
>weld straight lines, find the speed etc
>weld straight lines on curved metal
>weld curves and bends
then
>weld your name and/or a benis :-D

In that order.
>>
>>722956591
Holy shit you're welds are the shittiest I've seen

>>722961251
Extra medium

>>722959585
He specifically said that he is welding with 60xx electrodes. Any stupid nigger can weld with 7018. If your machine is set up properly you just lay the rod down and it falls in.
>>
>>722959487
Don't listen to the haters, best way to learn is to work. I've been in school for 4 years and havent learned shit compared to what I did few weeks on a workplace.

OP, ignore this fucknut. He is a plebe that has nothing to offer of any importance.
Probably doesn't even know what 6010 smells like when welding.
I will give you a hint.
Burnt popcorn.
