How To Weld: 7018 Vertical Up Stringer Beads




What do you think about this video?

Jeremy Zizzi: ChuckE, I found this video helpful but there is one thing you did not mention. What do you do when you reach to the top of the filet? Everytime I get there the rod burns through the metal leaving a huge knot. I'm running 1/8s at 105 amps. Unfortunately my college buddies are also having the same problem. My teachers are telling me to shift my angle when im about a 1/2 inch away from the top of the filet but i still keep getting those knots. They also tell me to wait for the bead to cool down before i continue because overheating will melt through the metal and that still didnt work. Can you please make a video on that so I can fully understand the problem and how to overcome it?

Spetsnaz Pocomaxa: You have some good videos. It's bad when many welding students like I and others... have to resort to youtube videos to learn how to welding. Too many colleges have "dead weight" on the paying roster. Yet that deprives students that want to learn. For example.. my college class is supposed to have a limit of 25 students. Well, there are over 50 just in the night class. Anybody else experiencing this problem?

E PLURIBUS UNUM: muito fraco !!! 

Florida Joe: Hey Jeremy, you're probably long arcing at the top and pulling the electrode towards you where you should push away at the top of your welds..Our instructors taught us to hold your electrode at no more then 5 degress...good luck!

Pyra Gorgon: Hiya ChuckE, I have a question for you... What is your rod angle? Are you about 15 degrees down? Or is it about 25 degrees? I've tried doing straight rod and found that works on thin stuff (kinda sorta sometimes) but it really puts a round bead down the middle on thicker work. I've not found a good rod angle yet. Any advice? I also have lots of problems with arc wander on vert. up on rusty junk. How do you stabilize the arc for 7018's? (I only get arc wander on vert up with 7018's. I hate them)

Jack Connors: Chuckie,I was Taught 1 Handed,, The Way Your shakin,, Have a Couple Of shots!!!!!!!!!!,, I NEVER wore a Helmet till My Nuke cests!!!!!!!,, Not Breaking em,, TRY IT!!!!!!!!,,, Good Luck

surrealbox: Your hot. and your welding tips rock too.

K.O.R.E: I started this weld at about 110 without knowing u had to have some kind of back n forth motion , and it liquefied nasty . Second try I went down to about 105 and started a tiny rainbow motion and things fell into place . The slackers in my class do take up my one on one time with the instructor so he actually recommended us go on YouTube to pick up tips n tricks to see what works for us. Thanks again brother . 

Florida Joe: Hey brother thanks for the video and tips,but I think you're moving wsy too fast on the sides,you need to hold on each side for a second in order to keep from undercutting..I usually use the 1,-1,2 count on 3G,but that's just my two cents! :)

texas san antonio: What I wanna know. Is why al these so called expert welders that criticized you are looking at you tube.......I tought it was a good video for us beginners. Thanks

Ken Fletcher: Hey ChuckE2009, Out of curiosity, how come all of your videos are showing fillet welds. How about some positional butt joints??

Dale Greene: Dude you need to slow way down and change your rod angle just a little. Stinger beads are not weaving just straight up. If you can't run it straight up do very very very small Z's.

welder2493: You are a terrible welder

fords281: That's some clean 7018 beads... any one who sais otherwise knows nothing about welding stick

desicrit: 90 amps?, that's all?, I build Norfolk Southern locomotive underframes and we run @ 120 to 140 amps, granted we're welding on 3/8 to 2 inch thick steel plate. Not to mention, every weld has to be damn near perfect, :). Really cool and awesome job tho. The v-up weld you demonstrated there wasn't too bad, just need to tighten up the weave. Try a "Z" weave. Z weave is mandatory for v-up welds on locomotives.

Chris Cole: good weld but u need to slow down a lil. that way u can get a puddle.... the puddle lets u know that you doin it....

bigjimmy2225: i tried welding the frame on my truck. it was like the hot weld fell right off i sprayed weld thru primer and i was using a miller XMT 304 CC/CV. at 90 amps its a friends welder and his rods where e309l-16 i don't know what that means any help would be nice 

Matthew Dalton: its not a stringer if you put motion in it

shn lj: ChuckE your videos have helped me tremendously! In welding classes now. Thank you so much!

David Parfitt: Awful weld dude. Do a weld like that at my shop. You'll be packing your tools and looking for a new job. 

Junickim Tradio: nice!

matt tice: im sorry bro its just dosent look good...try holding your rod straight across intead of at a angle....and I would try 80 amps go a little slower and take going way to fast...lol

Dennis Buswell: Hey Chucke...I thought 7018 is supposed to stay heated around 300f. Will it still work just fine if you don't?

Jack Spence: Subbed

Adini vermek istemeyen bir Seyirci: good job

levi parry parsley: I am in high school and i have been on this same weld for three months if you have any sugestions pleas respond.

James Galbraith: Thanks for the guidance, the last time I tried vertical it looked like my weld bead had a runny nose or something. Hope to practice more so I don't have to reposition my workpiece to get a good weld. Thanks again for the tips.

Reno M Rod: I started welding just 3 weeks ago, I was having real hard time with my vertical up stringer beads but thanks to you're tips I'm doing great now. Thanks you for taking the time to post all these great how to videos.

mike crain: Old Dog here, thanks for every thing that you put out , I,m picking up on my welding Mike in southern, illinois

raymond dick: I think vertical welding is easier than flat or horizontal for some reason

David Parfitt: Awful weld dude. Do a weld like that at my shop and you'll be packing up your tools,and looking for a new job.

Gerald C: good job there -- try a gold glass shield one day no flash - makes it easy to see -- even better seeing after welding for many years

asmoal100: please talk slowly to understand what you say becusae my english not very good

stef vreede: Thanks for the videos..keep up the good work.

kanairs23: Great help 

Tyler Cutlip: I had trouble on doing stringers in vertical up caint see y though

Juan Rios: hey chuck. very good videos have served me well. I did a test and weld all did well and did not pass. Vertical and overhead weld. and obtube 90%. welding plate an inch to what I have to regularly using 7018 1 \ 8 and a welder lincoln ranger 250

bakers724: Keep your rod tilted a little down hill, your hands higher then the tip of the rod, then do the upside down u motion .

1964kayakr: chuck .. i have been welding for thirty years ,, not much changes in welding , but you are doing a great job , try and get some more experience doing camera work and teaching .. you have a lot of good stuff working for you . i enjoy your video's keep up the great work.... ps check out " welding tips and tricks .com " Jody can show you some great stuff ...

Osmigo1: Everybody likes to quote that pearl of wisdom. The truth is, they can sit on the shelf just fine. If you're welding to code, with x-ray inspections, etc. you're required to keep the in an oven, but for everyday welding, it doesn't matter. A red tube works just fine. I have 7018 I've keep on the shelf here on my farm for years and it welds with absolutely no problems. Many others will tell you the same.

James Eggerth: Nice job vertical up is hard to do with any type of rod. 7018 is one of the hardest rods to do vertical up welds. Thanks for sharing your skills. :)
