In a previous episode, we ran some 1/16" Select Arc 78 wire in the vertical position. Today, we are expanding on this process and we are headed to the 4F position (overhead). The perimeters are going to be very similar to the vertical but instead of dragging the wire up, we will be running the wire straight in to a slight push angle.
Today we are running some 1/16" diameter Seismic Wire. It's a T-6 wire which means its used in seismic applications. This wire is used a lot out on the west coast as well as other areas prone to Seismic conditions (think earthquakes or areas with extreme vibrations).
Today we are closing out the welding defects/discontinuities series and covering the remaining 2 defects. The first one we discuss is unequal leg length. This is pretty simple defect to fix. Improper leg length is more than likely caused by improper work angle.
