    I've never fit a pipe in my life, but I would imagine there is a fitter out there who needs his ass kicked.

    Reeb, that is indeed a fine looking piece of work. Do you walk the cup or no?

    I walk the cup whenever I can but it just depends on the weld and if u have enough room. On this weld I walked the cup on 3/4 but on the lower left quarter I had to finger it

    Why? The gap? Its supposed to be like that.

    Ive never done that much of a fill with tig but I do know that i love being able to root and cap with tig.

    From the angle of the picture it looks like the fit has some high low

    I worked steam jacketed asphalt pipes in a rack for 7 or 8 years in the late 60s , early 70s and that fit looks fine to me. I think that some are mistaking the bevels for gap in that picture. And the weld is so much better than I got with E6010 stick rod that I am embarrassed. Course back then E6010 was the only weld that met boiler code in my State, we all knew that there were better processes but the code was law!. The worst day up there was when I was hanging under a pipe off the end of the rack and set the book of matches in my shirt pocket on fire. Can't say I miss it much.

    Yea dusty can't say I'm a fan of the 6010. We hardly use them in the plants anymore. Some jobs will still test u on it but once your in the plant its up to the welder what rod to use.I have some friends working the pipe line up in Pennsylnania and all they run on the bead is a 6010. 8010 on the fill and cap

    We mostly ran 6010 root, 7018 out unless a job was spec'ed differently. I'm that one in a million idiot/asshole that never liked to TIG. I could do it decently enough to get by but I never cared for it. I don't have the patience. Or I didn't, anyways. Now that I'm old enough to have the patience, I'm way too blind for it.
