    thats pretty good considering the crappy fit up i'd have trouble not burning through that one

This winter maybe I get some pics after I been welding a week somewhere. For me it makes a big difference in consistency, I can even tell improvement in a couple rods.

    your hand will steady with practice and you could turn it up 5amps and it will lay a little flatter

    I looked at the pictures and I "think" the original question was how close do the ripples need to be, so, your ripples are ok but you can get them tighter by turning down your heat a bit and adding a slight side to side weave. That will make it hump up better too so you end up with a nicer profile and less chance of spots being too low thuout the weld. And clear up any undercut you might have.
    As (I think) several people have already said, "wagon tracks" are a (buried) defect between the bead and the hot pass on a pipe weld due to not melting out the parallel groves on the edges of the stringer, either because of not enough grinding on the bead or not enough heat (or not standing in it long enough) on the hot pass.
    That's my take but I rarely if ever step 60,70,8010 rods.

    countryboy281,

    A couple of the pictures are dark, but I agree acwd1950. Your welds appear to be better than your instructor's weld from what I see in these three pictures. I've been a bit abrasive in my remarks concerning your instructor, but that has nothing to do with my compliment to your work in these pictures.

    Yes, I see some inconsistency and a somewhat less than straight line along the toes. So what man. Keep practicing. You are doing good. I don't much see undercutting along the toes. It appears most pronounced on your top bead in picture #1. That's a sign you are getting there. Believe me I have gouged out and repaired much worse over the years. Sometimes this type work was done by a new guy in town that undercut everybody's bids.

    As I have already said. Good job. Be proud of your work and keep practicing.

    Best of Luck,

    HAWK

    They look good to me. As for the wagon tracks they run parallel to the weld not perpendicular. The welds that you
    did look better than the one the instructor did. Spacing looks pretty good. Just keep at it practice make perfect.

    Ok sorry for all the confusion and for arguments sake

    My professor who i am goin to let remain anymonus has been welding since he was a teen worked at bowing engineering mc donald douglas and is a certified welder advanced tig welder holds more than 5 certs in the nde feild. I think he knows what he is talking about as far as doing it over and over day in and out it looks the same every demo. Only problem is he only does about 3 inches worth on a 6 inch coupon. I believe on pipe it is very critical to keep a consistencey. Could be wrong i have made it very clear im green to this but have a passion like no other for it. He refers to wagon tracks as the spacing between your"stack of dimes" there is a spacing (the instructors at college of the canyons which is a lisc. Testign facility) believe is big i have seen some of the sudents run tight dimes i my self cant get it any closer than yours. Sorry if i sound like a **** i appericate all the advice . Here are some pix of my projects.

    Thanks man. Brothers? Maybe. That's funny! I was married almost 21 years the first time. Paul Seaman spent a few days around the shop and learned why I stayed there 24/7! Andy W. met her once as well. That's two votes for sorry dude.

    I never thought I'd be down again in my cervical and lumbar spine 10 years down the road. Yea man, I am really lucky to walk and weld again for sure! Right now it's pretty much unbearable dude. Doc thinks I've got something to look forward to over the next year. Hopefully walking and not wheeling it.

    I am very sorry to hear about your heart problems. Good luck with the surgeon. PM me and I'll send you my email if you want to correspond. Maybe one day we can meet between NH and TN. and burn a few rods. You can post my welds as yours! HA! NOT!

    Well, I've read every post so far, and I don't think anybody has hit the proverbial nail on the head. 6010, just like any other rod you run is supposed to look "Neat and workman like" so that you can show anybody that looks at your weld that you know what the heck you are doing!
    It doesn't matter if you whip, pause, stagger or drag. Your beads should show consistent quality workmanship with minimal or no undercutting, consistent bead deposition, and be free of arc burns and other defects.
    Didn't JT pretty much cover it?

    I honestly believe he's been in more tight stitches and run more miles of weld on pipe than the rest of us put together. JT, I know we've had a few disagreements over uphill and downhand, but "you are the pipe man".

    What are you up to?
    Thats the same thing that happens when my wife wants to weld. Except it some how turns into it being my fault she cant weld and then she hates me for the rest of the day.

    Im still working as a shop rat right now. Been doin pressure vessels and process piping for a potash plant in NewMexico. Lots of stainless, mostly been doin 2'' sch80 socket welds and sock-o-lets. All the big butt welds are being orbitaled unless they cant get to them. Then we walk them out.
    Other than that, im trying to get on with NPL.
