    Today i finished up the last beam splice and they already started putting columns on the center of the beam to support the 3rd floor roof. Will be LVL's spanning the 3rd floor roof for support. There were a few breezes but for the most part the welding was trapped between the joist and the beam. I think i went through 40 lbs of wire and a full 125cuft bottle of gas. There was no callout on the placement of the straps by the engineer other than center on the splice so i did keep them a half inch back from the edge so it wasn't a edge weld. I'd rather do a overhead fillet than a edge weld. I'm glad to be done with this project as there's a lot of flammable tinder in this building.
