'How-to' Welding Class: Completing the Gas Welding
This HD video covers the final assembly and welds that make up the "cube". Note
the positions and options available for practicing your oxy-acetylene gas welding with a cube of sheet
(If you have enough bandwidth, the video is
viewable in 1080P and full-screen mode.)
"cube" is a good final exercise project for gas welding. 16-gauge sheet metal sides, top and bottom
provide challenges at flat, vertical and overhead welding positions.
The use of practice
sheet metal is more affordable. ER70-S2 rod in 1/16" and 3/32" is
also inexpensive. When you practice, use new or clean metal to assure good results. Make the most of the metal,
gas and filler.
Gas welding is as viable as any other fusion welding method.
These welded beads havethe stamina, quality and appearance of MIG
or TIG. Light gauge metal can be difficult to weld and control heat. Gas welding proves as user friendly
as any other form of fusion welding—arguably easier than some!
There are six demonstration videos and practice exercises in this section. You
will find a variety of gas welding and brazing articles and HD videos throughout the 'How-to: Welding Class'
