Drew up another one for you guys. This time about stick welding. Specifically 6010/6011. This explains some techniques to bridge an open root in different positions.

i have 6011 downhanded alot of piping on different farm applications for typical holding areas for cattle and what have you. i know it is not widely accepted to downhand but on thinner piping you bend the pipe long before any of my welds have broke. and they have been hit with all sorts of equipment

kburd, exactly. Downhill has it's purposes. Not for structural only weld, but for cleaning, sealing, and bridging an open root with a thin feathered edge it can be the best, most economical, and most low profile way of doing it. 6011/6010 rods dig very VERY deep and running vertical up with any process gives maximum penetration so on an open root or on thin material it is sometimes the only way to do it.

Out here on the pipeline all welds are downhill and the only time you will weld up hill is with hydrogen on certain tees and certain tie in's all depending upon your inspectors request and welder boy couldn't have drawn a better diagram for the application. Remember it all depends on where your at and most of the time it's just the testing part they want to see if you can do it, and if you can't you won't be welding there lines....So lots of practice and more practice and practice, Heres one more quote most have heard " dime wide & nickel high." :gunsfirin Lincoln Rod 5p+ ++++ 6010
