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).
https://www.weilerabrasives.com/ In a previous video we discussed Flux Cored Arc Welding in the 2G position. We are now rotating the plate 90° and going vertical. The joint configuration is similar to the horizontal plate except we now have both plates beveled at a 22.5° angle for a total of 45° included angle.
There seems to be a huge disconnect amongst the younger generation of welders when it comes to (CJP) prequalified weld tests, structural applications, and Flux Core Welding. I never realized how many "welders" didn't understand the aforementioned topics until we released this video.
