Thought this was interesting. I guess you get what you pay for.
That is great, I am stealing it.....LOL!
now that's a Good 1
It must have been Case where he applied for the job. I have a Case backhoe here that has some factory welds on it that look like the top one
My dad enjoyed that. He was a welder for 20+ years before becoming a welding instructor.
Bad welds are like porn. Hard to define with words but you know one when you see one.
Walkway over the road at Helen Devos Children's Hospital. As a quality engineer with 25 years in stamping and welding, I take pictures of bad welds. The bridge over the road at the "project" south of Ludington is full of them too.
looks like they put that one on with a caulking gun.
Extra paint fills the holes in. No one will ever know just don't put a lot of weight on it. LOL
We're you referring to the first pass that was way off location or the second pass with the cold, small bead?
Whether it involves wood or metal, I admire and am somewhat jealous of quality workmanship, but especially when it involves what I consider somewhat complex processes like welding.
One of our facilities engineers was an ex-Navy welder, and everything he welded, and I mean everything, looked like a row of dimes, no matter what process he used. The guy made it look so easy.
It's been 30+ years since I've welded anything. is that what they call a cold lap?
My personal belief is wood working is more of an art form than welding. At least quality wood working.
Maybe I was somewhat of a natural but I always found it enjoyable, rewarding and sometimes a little too simple. Now I've never welded like many do in the field so I can't comment on that and have no doubt it's more difficult in odd situations. Mine was always on a table or in the shop and I always found being comfortable was number 1 to my quality. I have no doubt welding while in an odd place would be an entirely different world. I just always thought I'd get bored welding as a career.
A monkey can MIG weld. I always LOVED TIG welding and was good at it. For some reason I've always sucked at arc welding.

In welding class we called it chicken ****
A co worker when I was welding went to classes for the same.
He would produce pretty practice samples that I would take to the hydraulic press to test for him.....
Not all pretty welds are good welds! Not all ugly are bad.
(Over head welding sucks.)
Very true about pretty welds.
Overhead is great, if you like sparks in the ears, down the neck, etc.
