Cheers!

I am a third generation industrial weldor. Great welds you got going on. Keep it up. It's a tough job but rewarding and (in the right venue) can pay decent. No shame in being a fab/weldor!

Thanks, if I end up being a steamfitter/pipefitter, I would also be a third generation steamfitter. Whether I go that direction or be some kind of engine mechanic, who knows!
My dad says I definitely have a back for welding and would like me to go into the union with him.

Lookin good AGDubyaJ!...

I mess around a lot lately with heavy euqipment for farmers and loggers lately on the side on repairs...

We deal with a lot of AR wear plates...

I've always been told by a few weld tech buddies of mine to pre-heat any AR400..450 and 500 to 400 and then try to keep the interpasses at 300..then just a weld blanket over it all for a slower cool...so thats what i do all the time working with this stuff and much more success compared they're past supposed weldor...

When welding the AR plate at your work,do they require you to pre heat it at all?..

Just asking because i am pretty new to the wear plates repairs on the side here....

we dont pre-heat anything unless its REALLY thick material- (my boss says its a waste of time... I do NOT agree) havent had any weld issues with the AR though, usually just run single pass .045 dual- shield FC71LF on thicker stuff (3/8th and up) and ER70s6 hardwire on anything thinner. running an Esab mig-master 250 for the dual shield, and a mig-master 203 for hardwire all 82/18 mix gas.

I weld a lot of chromium carbide (technically not weldable) to mild steel for wear protection with A LOT of weld failure with the dual shield- centerline cracks. but i have been getting OK results with the hardwire. ill take some pics of the stuff im talking about, very weird material.

Sweet! I see a track ref line, Bug-O or maybe a MK packrat? how do you remove the trap at the end?

That is some expensive welding.
