I have no idea about the math, when you start talking tangents I start thinking tangerines....

But I do know a nice weld when I see it. Excellent work!

Hey flange, great work. Was just wondering the material make up? if mild steel did you just do the tig root for higher allowable pressures? Also what are you using for your cap? dosent look like 7018 to me, im interested in maybe exploring some different rods for capping provided our procedures will allow. I do alot of stainless, chromoly, hastaoly, and inconel pressure work. Always nice to see different techniques and procedures.

thnks pressure welder, this is low pressure hot water, so mild steel. the root will have been for hygene other than any pressure purposes. truth is i cheated a bit later, on another spool i hope there is enough to keep you busy. with your cv you should never be out of work. lads these next shots will show i was building this spool backwards, ie fitting the bend to the break, the sketch shows a break on a bend t ell you what just look at the pics f/j

Oh cladding, looks similar to the production facilities for BP we engineered and constructed for the North Slope back in '74. The units were constructed on large skids afterwords metallic bldg. were constructed around the whole mess, utilities and product lines were flanged typ of you pics. Shipped 'um for Houston shipyards on barges thru the Panama Canal up to Alaska, actually there were still weldors on board finishing pipe fab on the way to meet the window up there before winter.
FJ thanks for all your fab pics. bring back a lot of memories.
Thanks again
L*S
