    Weld Size Question

    All of my welding experience is with MIG or TIG haven't touch STICK in my life and no structural work. Starting to use weld symbols at work for creating drawings for contractors (mostly structural work).

    My question is would multiple passes be necessary with STICK or MIG for a 1/4"...

  • Its a shame that this is an issue. Maybe if enough people post in here they will fix it I went with miller after my 4 year old speedglas 9100V broke last week in hopes it'd last longer than 4 years.

    Or maybe we need to add a counter weight to the top?

    New miller digital elite question

    Just got my new digital elite hood and did a little welding to try it out and my only complaint is it doesn't stay flipped up very well. I have the knobs on the side as tight as possible. Is there something I'm over looking that will help prevent the hood from flipping back down so easily?

    vibration

    I've been wondering if it would make much difference in stopping vibration if i through bolted vs tapped. I know i wouldn't be tapping in 16ga but i could weld a thicker plate on for tapping.

    I was thinking about adding some bracing between the 2 supports the come up and hold the lathe. Maybe run a piece of 6"x3/8" flat bar i have hanging around between the to supports. This piece would be under the chip tray but above any other drawers i add.

    I noticed that too and planned on changing it so it wasn't like that. Maybe by making the front legs straight or have a very small angle to them and possibly moving the position of the lathe forward some.

    Building a lathe stand

    Picked up a 6" atlas the other day and I am wanting to build a bench for it since the table the came with it takes up to much room in the garage so I'm looking for something with a smaller foot print. I like the one in the pictures i post. The stand In the pictures was built from 4"x6"...

    X-ray settings for steel

    I have the chance to get someone I know to x-ray my welds on practice pieces at his chiropractics business. Is it possible to use a x-ray machine meant for bones to x-ray steel? If so can anyone give me some settings to x-ray 3/16" steel?

    Just thought it'd be cool to mess around...

    Cost of 1-1/2" steel square tube

    Does $32 bucks sound about right for a 24' stick of 1-1/2" 16GA steel square tube?

    I got this price from a local shop and think its a little high since it matches the prices this site give me:http://www.metalsdepot.com/
    Always thought that the online metal sites marked up...
