Weld Slag SMAW Basics
Now this is a classic example of bad habits which need to stop. One thing that I see a bunch of, is beginners rushing through their weld practice. Rushing is not that bad unless you don’t clean the slag off completely after every pass. In this example, the uniformity is starting to take shape and their seems to be an understanding of the rod angle, but I can’t stop looking at all that slag, so therefore it is a fail. So please make a habit now to clean each and every weld you lay down because these bad habits will stay with you and get you fired.
