    This is my first completed Weld. The teacher said that it’s one of the best first completes he’s seen in a while. I think it’s beutifull and the creation of it is one of the single greatest events in human history if not the universe. He said I could use some improvement however and I’m gonna start another tomorrow morning and I plan on finishing it in a day or 2. What do you guys think, is it not great?

    Don't break your arm patting yourself on the back as your next welds will suffer.

    I'll have to take the teacher's word on it. If it's two pieces (one top, one bottom) both ground to 45 degrees and weld on the left and right, then well done! If it's one piece, then I can't tell where the weld begins.

    Measure twice. Weld once. Grind to size.

    And I weld using one hand so my weld won’t suffer....unless I break my right hand.

    If that's your first weld, it's not too bad.
    What process did you use?
    This cut out should really be polished with an 80 grit flapper disc. It looks like I see some buried porosity and slag in the upper left side. The cut lines make it a bit difficult to get a clear view of what's inside.

    Here's a secret for the professor. Strike up on a piece of scrap next to the "important" piece. Jump the 1/4" over to the actual piece to weld.I use an arc pig sometimes. No need to touch the electrode to arc up

    Too bad in NJ, welding isn't an elective at high schools nor any shop classes, as they were removed 20 years ago. Now i have to learn singlehandedly and that sucks !!! jk

    Welds aren't supposed to have holes in them.

    I see the weld lines. I highlighted them for those that can't see them. Go back and look closely and you'll see them. It's two squares turned in to create 2 V's.
