Can any one help me with a suggested weld procedure for butt welding some 1.5 inch schedule 10 316 stainless elbows?
Dimensions of the pipe are 48.26 mm OD with 2.77 mm wall thickness.
It would be great if you could suggest:
Tungsten diameter? 2.4 or 3.2?? Should your tungsten diameter match material thickeness? Or is that rubbish?
Filler rod diameter? 1.6 or bigger??
Any edge prep? I belive they come with a slight bevel?
Its only a hobby project and no one is going to die if they fail but i would really appreciate some constructive help from the more experienced (than me) TIG welders on this board.
PS. Sorry its all in metric!
