Best technique for vertical cover pass on 7018 rods?
by D. Lucido
I will be taking test doing a butt weld with back plate. I have to do a few root passes with 6010 and then cover with 7018. All passes with be vertical and my plates that I do the butt weld with are 3/4in thick. I will gauge the thickness of my gap with an 1/8 in rod. Then start my test. I just need the best vertical technique or pattern on 7018 so it looks good when I am done.
