WM BLITZ VIDEO #27 Rooftop Overhead 3/32" 7018
If you struggle with overhead stick welding, this video is for you.
This video shows my friend Matt Hayden stick welding with 3/32" 7018 on a joint called "rooftop".
sometimes a 3/32" 7018 can make the puddle easier to control.
Its a true overhead weld that is usually used to train for the overhead portion of a pipe.
Once a student can do this overhead weld along with vertical uphill, transitioning to pipe welding becomes mostly a matter of body positioning.
Settings: DCEP at 90-95 amps using Lincoln Excalibur 7018
