Thank you! Actually I welded that with a miller syncrowave 350, was set at about 12 amps with pulse using regular 1/16 308 stainless filler.

I would have done a single straight bead myself. But I have a slight ocd when it comes to things that aren't even or straight, especially when its fairly easy to do so/fix/replace.

I'm actually applying to the local 250 union to become a pipe/steam fitter. Waiting to take the math test, and then go from there. Been welding for about 9years

A single straight bead would have warped the crap out of it. In aerospace welding your always suppose to weld away from the edges to keep a tolerance of .009 everything we weld at my job from inconel and titanium to steel require this process. I was a steam fitter for valero but decided to go into the aerospace business since it's better paid. Thanks though.

Are you good at math? I would get a tutor if your are not. Have you talked to anyone who has taken the test? Have you taken timed practice tests?

Put your flame suit on. The guys here hate unions. I am local 38 in SF HVAC. It has been a great trade, great pay, good pension, great benefits. I have worked for the same employer for 13 years and never worked under 2200 hours in a year, often much more. If I ever want to leave, my benefits stay with me and I don't have to start over.

Sorry for the thread jack. Nice work OP!

I am actually terrible at math, mainly because I'm dyslexic. And I get numbers mixed more then anything. While I read. Ill typically not mix words or letters but the paragraphs will swap around.

Numbers are my biggest problem and its very hard for me to concentrate on doing the actual math when I'm trying so hard to not flip and mix numbers and letters.. even symbols.

I don't know anyone in the pipe trade.

Op I would be interested in areospace stuff like you, is that something I'd need more experience before applying. I've worked for my dad for 9 years welding mainly beams and rack for huge warehouses, among other things.

A good start to get into the type of welding I do is start getting as many certificates in tig welding. Stainless steel, steel, inconel, titanium, manganese and aluminum are what you will be required to weld so try and practice on those materials at home. If you have access to a local college with welding classes they most likely offer those tests where you will weld a coupon to be examined in xray, dye penetrant and destructive testing. If your local I can see if I can get you a tour of my facility so you can see the strict guidelines they require to see if this is for you.
