bead restart

by john f.

what is the best way restart a bead in the middle of the testplate?


For a welding test, use a grinder if they let you.

feather back the crater into a landing strip.

that gives a better chance for a good start.

either that...or for stick welding, get right back in there with another rod while the crater is red hot.
