Welcome aboard. On that project, did you have to get 100% pen welds? If so, did you space the pipes apart and follow the keyhole to see your penetration?

Welcome to the group. I'm sure with 13 years of experience, you will have some helpful tips to add too. I didn't think anyone used 6010 rod anymore. When I first start to learn to weld, my Boss/teacher, started me out on 6010, I hated that rod, but now I won't use anything but 6010, and 7018.
