    How come Garage Journal and a little outfit like Shop Floor Talk can get it right and Hobart and Miller with all the clout of ITW has it all messed up?

        Hi, im new to this site and i am looking for some help please regarding a v butt joint coding.It is a horrizontal butt joint which is 10mm plate and the angle of the prep is 60 degrees with a 1mm root face and a 6 mm backing plate. I am using a mig machine with a 1.2 dia wire which is 1050, the plate is 1050aH14. The problem is... That i am having porosity problems all through the joint. I am using puresheild argon. 15-20 lpm. I have degreased the joint with swansolv and wire brushed with a stainless steel brush in one direction to avoid contaminating the joint with aluminum oxide and i still cannot pass it during to porosity does anybody know what the problem could be? I would apreciate help if you have an idea Thanks

            This post should be moved to it's own thread to avoid Confusing the issue on this one

              The biggest thing that would help is to have a "New Post" button to quickly check to see if any new posts were made across all of the forums like the pic below in the middle of the bar.

                  I see the posts aren't updating and moving to the top of the list like they usually do. Going to make people stop checking the forum for whats new.

                  I guess that's a pretty good way to get out of the forum hosting business.

                    So whats going on now I have tried emailing the forum email address listed but my emails bounce back to me? I have also noticed that several posts on this site are repeated one right after the other. Sometimes only just seconds or maybe a minute apart, with four to five posts straight in a row.

                      Plus one there Shovelon, not to mention Miller's server speed is slower than a MF. It takes forever to load a page now. I too have noticed the usuals are not posting as much anymore, i havent been. I dont feel like coming home from work, take care of my family then re-learn a whole new web site and forum protocal just to participate. It used to be fun to interact but we have gone through at least 2 forum upgrades since ive been on. And each one has sucked more than the last one.

                      I love welding and like giving advice but dont make me jump through hoops and make it difficult for me to do it.
                      Most of the seniors here arn't "hipster computer geeks".. The constant changing is alienateing a "great" portion of the members.

                      Your forum technology is evolving faster than you member base can keep up!!

                        The technology may be evolving, but it's certainly not better. It's been a struggle since the last update and little progress to improve it. I have also noticed a slow down in activity lately. I don't bother with the forum much lately because it's been so hit and miss with it working or not.

                        I replied to the last email they sent out a couple days ago. Hope they take it seriously. If not, I'll just be forum-less again.

                          I've just gotten back on after a bit of an absence, and haven't noticed much in terms of issues, but then, it's only been a half hour... As to the look of the new site, at least the forums as I haven't yet been out to the main site to browse around, I have to say that I like the simple, clean layout. I spent many many years in IT, and the crap that they have pushed out, from Shockwave to Java to Flash, have basically taken all that additional horsepower that each new generation of hardware has, and hammered it down with bloated software, often running on the above mentioned platforms. Often times I see that change is made for no other reason than for it's own sake, gotta have the newest, latest and greatest, have to have that one new feature, or else our site is [email protected], etc. If it isn't flashing and dinging, how can we keep the attn of the A.D.D. generation?

                          I for one Like simple, clean and Fast, but then, I was around back when the modern internet was "invented", so it's kind of like back to the future in that regard. I appreciate a well working, informative website as much as the next guy, but when it's loaded down with so much stuff that you need to have a i-7 to run it smoothly, that's where I say Why? One other trend is to make websites more mobile friendly, which in 2016 is a fine thing, but what I have seen many other sites do is gimp/dumb down the user interface/experience of laptop/desktop users to make it more usable for smaller screens. This I find unacceptable, and the better sites find a way to make it work for both. As I don't access this on a touch screen device, I have no idea how it currently works on them, but I hope for the best for those ppl who do. Well, thems my thoughts for whatever they're worth.



                          Oh, and one last thing, you should have a timer on the edit feature, that it doesn't show as being edited for at least 3-5 mins after posting, in case you quickly notice a small error, or thought or whatever that you want to add to the post, and go right back in and quickly change it. This is a pet peeve of mine, and many sites do this, the length of time varies, but 3-5 mins is the norm. Also just now when I posted the orig post, it took well over 15 seconds for it to stop processing, and for my post to appear. This might be what ppl are saying about the slowdown, and if so, it should certainly be addressed, as posting straight text should almost be instantaneous.

                            Have always liked this forum, but have to agree with many of the complaints previously posted.

                              Yes same here. Someone needs to remind them of the old saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it". Before all of the updates and redesigns it was good but some just don't learn. Kinda like dropping the Trailblazer 302, I have one and was going to replace it a year ago just because it was getting quite a few hours on it but they dropped it and came out with something different, took the AC option off and put the fuel fill and oil filter on the wrong side. Ill keep the old TB for a long time.
