amount of land to weld pipe?

How much land would be required to weld 8 inch diameter sch,40 pipe open butt?


Depends on a lot of things.

for tig welding root pass, no land is required.

for stick uphill 6010 electrode, 3/32--1/8" with a 3/32--1/8" gap.

for downhill root with 6010 or 7010, 1/16"--3/32" gap and land works depending on welder preference and procedure.
