i am in my 3 semester for pipe welding in my local college. and i was wondering about suggestion for getting comfortable on welding pipe from 6-3 position. and 6-9 position . and do you switch hands when you are welding on different sides?


I wish there was a simple answer but it seems different for everyone.

Try lots of things with the machine off.
you will figure out what works and train some muscles too.

anyone else got some suggestions???
