The mechanical contractor that is doing the steam piping on the job that I am on had 11 weld leaks in one room. How on earth can you have enough skill to pass the weld test and still suck that bad?? I'm thinking somebody is being fraudulent on their certifications.

I've talked to a couple mdot tester s for bridge welding. They told me that more get certified than are actually capable.

Last i knew, my dad was one of twelve in the state that are certified. The testers said that of the twelve, only 5-6 were actually that good. (My dad must have been one of them lol)

Anybody can get lucky once. Can't you pass with just one weld? There is also a bunch of other types of pipe welder certification also.

I know my dad and grandpa always just opted for the most difficult weld to get certification for all pipe. I know it is on a 45, something like single pass or continuous bead or something

I'll let you have some warm and fuzzies if you want to give me a handgun.

Notice i said have, not give.

There are a ton of pipe certs, it just depends on what you do. Just between my stainless and carbon certs I have taken 7 separate tests. To be certified in all positions you must test in the 6g position which is the pipe on a 45 degree angle. 11 leaks is just amazing to me to have in one room. I don't know any welders (that are still employed) that have had more than 5 in an entire career.

Must be some short careers

I wouldn't feel that bad if I had one a year.

I had my phone wiped a few weeks ago and I told the kid I wanted my games saved. It took a bit longer to get my phone back but everything is still there.

It could be worst. You could sound like steveo...

Is it still gay porn when a chick post it? Or does it turn into something less derogatory?
