Setting up 6" in the 6g position

How many tacks are required for the fit up of the 6" 6g pipe test?

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


mostly its done using 4 tacks.

12, 3, 6, 9 oclock.

that is pretty much how its done in the field so it makes sense to do it for testing as well.

i have taken tests where only 2 tacks were used at 12 and 6 oclock.. but that is rare.
