when welding cap on uphill v grove plate.
by Terry Bordelon
all plate and pipe caps that i know of are done with a 7018. so pretend thats what ull b using.
try weaving a figure eight up ur weld. count every time ur puddle touches the sides of ur work piece, every 4th time you whip the rod up the plate or pipe , and bring it back down into ur puddle . its a whip and pause techgique an old man tought me. it allows for ur weld to cool of almost all the way so you do not have a big nasty looking chunck of weld in one spot.
