View Full Version : Blueprint reading/welding symbols... quick question.
06-02-2011, 11:04 PM
With regards to consumable inserts on the welding symbol.
When a consumable insert is specified on the welding symbol, does CJP need to be indicated as well? Or does the consumable insert inherently create CJP and it is assumed?
Does this make sense?

slow6i - Assume nothing, and don't relay on a third source [this forum].
Ask for clarification from the drafters of the print. Specification oversights
can occur all the way from the Welding Engineer to the drafting detailers.
Walk your question forward, from the lowest level possible, and everyone
will be your friend for the long term. Opus

When reading blueprints, always play dumb when something isnt clear and ask for clarification, mis-interpretations can be very very expensive. Coming from commercial construction, always call and ask if its not clear or if you think there is an error, especially when its a competitive bid or a safety concern. Architects and engineers are paid to draw things correctly and accurately, if they screw up its their job to fix it and make everyone aware of the problem, sometimes its up to you though to let them know about the problems

Thank you for the responses. I'm not creating anything from a print. This is for school and is one of the review questions before my final next week. None the less, my question was answered.
