Weld Slag SMAW Basics

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.

What is the significance of keeping the electrodes in the “microwave”?

We don’t keep the electrodes in the microwave, but rather an electrode oven. The reason is so that the electrodes stay dry. The electrodes absorb moisture once they are opened and especially the low hydrogen types. In order for them to remain low hydrogen, they need to be as dry as possible.
