HOT PASSING AND STICKING THE CAP ON TIG ROOT/HOT PASS 6IN PIPE

HOW SHOULD I HOT PASS USING STICK AFTER MY TIG ROOT HAS BEEN PUT IN AND WHAT ANGLE SHOULD I HOLD MY ROD WHEN CAPPING IT.

--------------------------------------------------

best advise is to add one more pass with tig before jumping on the stick.

too many times, i have blown thru when only a root was put in with tig.

a 90 degree rod angle works best ...or close to it.
