I work for Fulton Boiler Works and my 2g test was without a backer, and the
top plate had a 45 degree angle. root pass with solid wire then the face
was all flux core. Does anyone have any tips or know how to pass without
problems? both plates were 5/8.

Author joao batista pereira de paula (3 months)
2/1 or 3/1

Author Hunter McNeil (6 months)
is that a 8milimeter gap ? for cwb qualifications its a full fillet on the
bottom and 4-1/2 " stop and start on the top...if your not using a backing
bar....that's called a open root.

Author bunkkker (2 years)
pushing just makes sure the gas cleans the weld properly its hardly gonna
cool it quicker ya might aswell blow on it ha ha...if ya just weave back
and forward slightly ya go back into the puddle making better penetration
:) plus if ya not penetrating properly turn ya machine up...;)

MIG aka Metal Inert Gas, MAG aka Metal Active Gas. Of course in Europe

hate the backing plate open v-groove is the better way to go.

Author Davdar4 (2 years)
For one the weld looks like sh*% because you free handed it and you're not
good enough for it. Two you have a back plate on it. Anyone who can halfway
weld can do this weld with a back plate on it. Get you some 3/4 inch plate
about 10 inches long and 8 inches tall, cut it in half long ways. Put you a
bevel in your top piece. Fit it up with a 1/8 inch gap between the plates
(with the bevel in the gap on top). Put you a MIG route (with no back
plate) then fill and cap it with FLUX.

Ok why dont you just lay it on a table its just the same it EASY . Im a
certified welder and i run that weld 50 times a week. Try it in a 4g
position with flux core wire or even in a 3g .

Author HiredHitman63 (1 year)
Pushing the puddle and pulling are all preference and situation specific.
Just as vertical down and vertical up are(except with FCAW and SMAW.) You
don't get as much penetration when pushing with MIG, therefore, he actually
made the proper decision to pull the puddle. It's a test plate,
penetration=PASS. Also, quote me if I'm wrong, but I saw no porosity* in
his welds. His travel speed was a bit fast, but at least know your facts
before unjustly critiquing someone.

Author jason hullihen (3 years)
i dont like the way you move the torch around you dont need to do circle's
in your passes that is not right at all when you form a puddle the molton
puddle of weld is already round why would you abuse your wrist like that i
will never understand it.. but looks like a good clean weld.. with that
thickness you would get better penitration with straight co 2... to me the
second and third one one you were going to fast ... man good thing you are
not busy took along time
