    Agreed; and I'd be lying if I said that I had never proposed that SWPS before when the client balked at following a strict interpretation of the welding code.

    Wouldn't be the first time I've encountered a blank stare when I asked about a PQR and weld test. Sometimes it seems like needless paperwork. But whenever I see the words steam pipe, or the words 'load bearing member', I err on the side of caution.

    I usually get the reverse, they want a "certified welder" to do it. When I question, "to what code do you want the certification" I get the blank stare... I do a lot of stuff for machine shops/machine building etc. Their customer wants some run of the mill machine weldment or whatever.

    Re: GMAW Sch 40 Stainless Socket Welds

    These guys are right. If doing stainless it needs to be tig. I have seen some shops wire stainless with hard wire but only on something that's no pressure. Looks like crap. And in that pic the heat is way low it's not tied in. And I agree that it probably is bottomed out on the fits which means they had no room for play to level and square up the fittings so they are probably out of spec. I need to go to work there I could be a #1 ace welder lol. On second thought they won't be in buisness long if they still are so scratch that.

    It has been my experience that things covered in **** usually don't get repaired with much care.

    I think that statement is pretty much true lol.

    It was always needing to be fixed yesterday, and as soon as the wash was done, they start milking again. I'm sure you know the drill if you have been around a dairy farm.
