    Have to jump in on this,as SDIII said "BS question"".A while back I was asked to answer a BS question of this realm of" rocket science"(as JSFAB later stated) from our truckdriving buddy.The weight of a weld cross section...he is the guy to ask for this "out to lunch" never need to know info.If your here asking questions,that level of fabrication is over your head....

    Thanks again!
    You need a drawing or blueprint. Also if you design the part yourself of coarse it will have to be tested for its intended purpose. Lives could be at stake.

    One more thing. Mike should read this excellent web page on cost savings for these "shutters"

    http://www.weldreality.com/metric_weld_conversions.htm

    Excellent info for production parts.

    They do have hand held welding calculaters for that express purpose, but first we would need to know the length of the welds and the spacing if any etc.,.

    mikejmu - We need much more information to answer your question. See below.

    And what was the welding process? MIG, SMAW, ????

    See what I mean?

    First determine the pounds per foot for that process, and filler size. Then figure how many inches or feet of welding with that welding process and welding specification, and you will have your answer.
    You may need to know how to read welding symbols.


    After you measure the plates and have your thickness say 1/4 inch @10.2 pounds per square foot then take the total
    weight of the plates- and subtract that from the weight of the finished weldment and you will have your answer to the weight of the welding filler material.

    For the forum members..... Go to http://www.indiamart.com/yauseffabri.../products.html
    And scroll down to see photos.
    These "shuttering" plates are forms for the construction process of bridges etc.,.


    BTW... Why are we not making these simple plates in our own country for our own building projects???/

    Wow, I really am not a spammer.

    I was trying to find out the answer to the question. I guess I'll post it on another forum. Sorry to bother you.

    Frankly I think it's pretty stupid to post up a question that you don't even have a clue about what's being asked.

    But then again, based on this and your other posts, I'm pretty sure you're just another SPAMMER posting BS on a message board.

    GTFOH with your ads for "welding machines".
    very well put SundownIII

    Here's where the question is: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...3194941AAu4Wcy
    Seriously- why are you even asking this question if you are not a Spammer?

    "This question about "How much weight of w… " was originally asked on Yahoo! Answers India"

    Wow, not too friendly. In most forums you're allowed to put a link in your signature. I'm not a spammer.

    Have a nice day.

    We don't understand what the he11 you're talking about.

    Ask a BS question and you're not going to get any help. Try explaining what you're talking about (application), and there may be someone who could help.
