I have a weld test at a big company tomorrow and I need help.
The test is on plate with 1/8th land and gap in vertical. The root must be 1/8th 7018 downhill. This goes against everything I've ever been tought in school. But it will be backgouged after completion of the first side so I guess it's alright.
If any of you guys or girls have tips for me, I could sure use it. During practice the slag would get in front of the puddle and I can't get any fusion. It's got to be thick enough to get a hot pass in there without blowing through the root. Only the root is downhill.
