Do you know the heat number of a black coat hanger as opposed to a gray one? I dont! But I do know my welding experience far exceeds "Googles" programed knowledge! In fact, Google still represented an infinite number and a 64K RAM computer was a dream yet to become a public reality! With that said and without brushing the dust off old "manuals, notes and logs,"and WITHOUT using Gods name Ill disclose the fact that any T-11,Coreshield 11, Intershield NR-211-MP, etc. and the list goes on, is a mild steel, limited MP, limited thickness application wire when used without gas coverage. Heres where it gets really good! When you add the NOS gas coverage to the 3G & 4G rated wires in question, slower deposition rates can be achieved, for a concise application critical and restricted applications where strength is maximized with minimal heat stress to base materials! Such as a bike frame, a tube chassis, or even T-10 boiler tube! That aint all.... but thats all Im giving you. Care to give a little of your of your background? Vo-Tech? LOL! Simply put, Its refining a refined process! PS. kopcicle's correct, it is duelshield and beyond standard A-36 structural applications. You didnt note your Local#,your not a "rat" are you?yep, but E71T-11 is a self shield wire.... E71T-1 is a dual shield...
Gas pipe? Who mentioned gas pipe! Heres a golden question, what is the difference between pipe and tubing? And Paul, I only use coat hanger filler rod when gas welding rusty old exhaust systems! I was delivering a sarcastic rebuttal to the comment made by a previous poster who felt the need to use God in an attack against my integrity,knowledge and experience in welding applications. It was not directed at you or hardtail.and dont even think of using gas pipe instead of tubing..
Umm... Pipe is made for plumbing. :tongue: :lol: Not being a metal person or a welder my guess would be pipe is thicker walled, probably mfg by a different process and from a different alloy but thats just swag's.Heres a golden question, what is the difference between pipe and tubing?
Nice try Mike, For you I will reveal the answer that eludes many mechanical engineers! The difference is only in the measurement of the material. Pipe is measured by its inside diameter, and Tube is measured by outside diameter, Its simply ID and OD. All the variables involved in wall thicknesses, alloys, materials, uses, shapes and methods of production apply to both Pipe and Tubing. Thats it, I wonder what kind of responses this is going to generate? Merry Christmas Michael, and to all!Umm... Pipe is made for plumbing. :tongue: :lol: Not being a metal person or a welder my guess would be pipe is thicker walled, probably mfg by a different process and from a different alloy but thats just swag's.
