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
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)
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?
fords281: That's some clean 7018 beads... any one who sais otherwise knows nothing
about welding stick
welder2493: You are a terrible welder
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.
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
Ken Fletcher: Hey ChuckE2009, Out of curiosity, how come all of your videos are showing
fillet welds. How about some positional butt joints??
Junickim Tradio: nice!
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....
alonso godoy: fine weld man
Matthew Dalton: its not a stringer if you put motion in it
Leon Vida: You are one helpful MUTHA****!!!
Tim Shasteen: dog crap think wal mart hiring bro
Donald Branscom: Why are you yelling?
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
shn lj: ChuckE your videos have helped me tremendously! In welding classes now.
Thank you so much!
twe enyss: Not bad-done better-done lots worse lol.Good video
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.
Adini vermek istemeyen bir Seyirci: good job
Dennis Buswell: Hey Chucke...I thought 7018 is supposed to stay heated around 300f. Will it
still work just fine if you don't?
Ansari Baksh: Thanks for the great videos dude. I'm learning to weld from your videos.
trinescape: Thanks that helped me alot ! really appreciate you taking the time to post
these videos well done
stef vreede: Thanks for the videos..keep up the good work.
clyddoudou: +ChuckE2009 i need ur email to contact u
Jack Spence: Subbed
Shane Goguen: well done sir, love these videos.
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
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
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.
raymond dick: I think vertical welding is easier than flat or horizontal for some reason
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 .
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
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.
Tyler Cutlip: I had trouble on doing stringers in vertical up caint see y though
asmoal100: please talk slowly to understand what you say becusae my english not very
kanairs23: Great help
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

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. :)
speedxdreems: that is a weave not a stringer in the 3f position and it is still done wrong
Birdkillersteve: I used an old Lincoln A/C machine (the tombstone type) and passed a 6G pipe
test. I think everyone should learn on one of those old suckers man. If
you're good with one of those you will kick ass on a D/C machine!
skate46516: Was that the burninator tank in the back from back when? Or somthing else
Charles Wilson: Got to give
Michael Hardesty: Are you in a union?
85raminator: gotta make due with what you got sometimes, ive passed xray with an already
opened box of 7018 that had been laying around for awhile.
sassysteve06: tried your tecniq. 2day and improved my welding passes for vertcal up
7018...ran around 120 amps dc straight seemed ok for my old miller
Mightiflier: awesome, keep them coming
rogers bj: If you don't establish the proper puddle, you're gonna have a bad time!
