Oxy Welding Fun and Despair
Welding with the oxyfuel process can be very rewarding, yet very frustrating if your not careful. Welding outside corner joints can be welded fusion style, which means- no filler metal only the base metal gets welded to itself. In order for this to be a successful weld, proper set up is critical. The inside edges have to be in contact with each other in order for this fusion to happen. If there are gaps, which usually happens when you rush to put things together, you will need to use filler metal in those areas.
All in all, Gabriel did a great job at fusion welding his cube, till the end. Eric found his name among his practice pieces. Practice, practice, practice and practice some more is the only way to improve your technique.
