Hi I’m Mike Rogers and we are making this
video for expertvillage.com on the use of mid welder. Our next project would be how
to create a simple lap joint. This is technique often requires for joining any manner of piece
of steel when you need to extend them or you need to build them up, we need to join a fill
of metal to a thicker metal. Very simple, very straight forward all we need to do is
prepare our steel as long it is relatively clean if you have a lot of rust that is fine.
Lay the two together and clamp them in the exact position where you want the finish piece.
Clamp carefully. Line it up as you as matter of fact you would measure it to make sure
it position … Next we would attach weld the two items together. S clamp don’t forget.
Yes we are now going to carefully talc weld to keep this into position. Again. Again.
Again. Okay now you could see that we talc weld it. The two pieces here together this
is going to hold it secure the position and then we could double check that it is accurate
position before we finally weld our pieces together. Close your eyes. Ready. So we have
the two pieces simply not welded together. That would form a permanent join in the two
pieces of steel.
