fillet tip

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A tip on specifying fillet welds, for what it's worth:

SInce a 1/2" fillet uses 4 times as much weld material as a 1/4" fillet, it's
usually better to spec. longer, smaller fillet welds where possible.  Also,
smaller welds require fewer passes and have less susceptibility to errors.
