test for .045 flux core on 3/4 inch plate mild steel

OK I have to take a welding test with .o45 flux core wire on a 3/4 inch thick plate and I'm wondering if anyone can show me the setup for the plates and wire speed voltage. Mainly I'm looking for what the gap needs to be set at for this but if you know any additional information I would be gratefully appreciative


If the test is a standard AWS structural plate test, the gap will probably be 1/4" plus or minus 1/16"

a 1/4" thick backing plate also

bevel is usually 22.5 degrees for a 45 deg included angle

anyone else wanna weigh in on this?
