How should I set up for a 6G welding test? How tall is the stand and angle of the pipe?
Any help on this matter will be greatly appreciated!

Extremely useful and informative the site, GREAT site.



Usually, the height of the 6g weld test coupon can be set to where it is right for the height of the welder taking the test.

but....once the pipe is tack welded and the weld test begins, often times, moving the height is not allowed.

it is up to the test supervisor really.

I have taken 6g tests where grinding was allowed and you could actually remove the pipe from the stand and grind in a grinding booth and then position it back in place for the welding.
