    Yeah 5/32 6010 bead and hp, with 3/16 70+ fill and cap 20 minutes.
    But if he's runnin all up hill, then I could see maybe 45 minutes to an hour at the most.

    up hill or down hill on the 6010 passes? and are you grinding your root pass? is this time including fit-up as well? or did they have some one come in before you and tack and go? in position or on the bench and rolled? x-ray quality?

    Pipe Welders

    One of my customers is complaining that it is taking me to long to weld up a
    8"x.322 wall steel pipe: (used for city water lines),6010 root,6010 hot and 7018 cap,it takes me about 1hour 20 minutes from start to finish. Any of you pipe welders does this sound about rite? I personally think this is to fast,especially working by the hour,though i am not trying to put the shaft to these guys they are 80% of my work.
Working...
