Re: HSS Weld Splice

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We use this method regularly in our shop.  We cut a 3/4" or 1" thick plate
to the inside profile of the HSS (we normally have square or rectangular
HSS) and use it as a backing bar inside the HSS.  We have found it the best
way to get a tight fitting backing at the corner radius.  The HSS wall will
need to be bevelled (t>1/4") for a proper weld joint.

> Could we get a full penetration weld splice between 2 HSS, say, of the
same size? I'm planning to recommend that the shop provide a circular
backing bar which will be left in place when the welding is completed. We
are doing this because the full length we need is not available.
