How To Weld: 7018 Vertical Up Stringer Beads




What do you think about this video?

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)

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?

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

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

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 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

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 good

CleaningGuide: freak you reed richards you don't have a shop freaker

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 welder lincoln ranger 250

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 new?

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!

MrJarred45: Whats up with the tractor
