Poor Fit-up / Filling Gaps with MIG - Miller Welding ...

Well, when I turned the piece over to weld on the bottom, there were some pretty large gaps. Building up in these areas was very easy and helped greatly. The biggest problem I had was the wind. I literally had to cup the arc with my free hand. It was interesting. A little different from welding in a booth...

How to Fill a Gap When Welding - Kevin Caron

A couple of other ways to fill gaps include straightening a coathanger and laying it inside the gap, getting a piece of thick copper -1/8" or 1/4" preferred - and using it as a backer because the steel won't stick to the copper. You can clamp or prop the copper, which gives the molten steel something to run up against as you are welding.

Mar 20, 2009 · You can fill a bad gap by whipping the daylights out of the rod. Take the slag off the top of the ratcrap, but leave the slag on the bottom of the hole. The slag actually helps to hold the metal from the second pass. There's slag on the underside of a weld too if it's over a gap.

A little tip for filling those pesky gaps.

Knock the heavy coating off of a 7018 stick,a little of it will stay on,leave it. Now as you start your arc at the bottom of the gap with another rod,feed the rod you knocked the flux off of into the puddle like a tig rod. As you build across the gap,dab in the feed rod to help fill and chill the puddle as needed.

How to Fill and Shave Unused Holes in Your Project ...

Aug 13, 2012 · The key tip is to make sure you take the time to setup your welder for nice flat spot welds and leave time for the metal to cool between each weld. The easiest holes to fill are small holes about the diameter of a pen or smaller. For these types of holes I start by cleaning the area around the hole with an Angle Grinder and Flap Disc.

flare-bevel weld with profile to fill the gap - Welding ...

Looking at your weld callout I noticed that the weld dimension uses parentheses which would indicate it is a reference dimension. I think it would normally be hard to produce a flat weld profile with this kind of joint. So if you really need a flat profile on your finished weld it would probably need to be ground flush after welding.

I mean, the gaps filled in, but upon closer inspection, it looks like they filled in ...

Slugging - American Welding Society

Apr 10, 2015 · Ok, so everyone with even a little bit of weld joint design knowledge knows that "Slugging" ( aka - stuffing too large joint gaps with material to fill the gap and welding over it) is bad. A3.0 defines slugging as "Unauthorized". I'm having trouble finding just where in D1.1 that this is defined as unauthorized, or prohibited.

With 3/16 if you want to gap you can gap it between 1/16 and 3/32 it will help considerably but if you want to achieve a true 100% weld you will have to back grind or on heavier stuff back gouge and grind then weld the back side.

Calculating Weld Volume and Weight - TWI

Calculating the volume of a weld is one of the first steps to be taken when estimating the cost of making a weld. With this information, and knowing the deposition rate of the process, it is possible to determine the arc time (the length of time that an arc is burning and depositing weld metal) and the amount of welding consumables required to fill the joint.

Flux core: Filling holes/Crappy part fit : Welding - reddit

Is there anything wrong with this 'technique' (If I can even call it that) that would compromise the weld? Apart from using filler metal, is there any better way to fill gaps like these? Filler metal is not an option for me. I'm not sure it's necessary but I can upload pictures of what a fill done like this looks like. Thanks!
