Started work a fire watch to get my career as a construction worker.. Worked along with my brother in-law who worked as a Iron Worker. He had showed me with safety too work with power tools & material.. I watched and learned my way up to being a helper.. I knew about paper work and drawings so he helped me understand blue prints as a Iron worker helper, soon after came Rigging small material. Structural welding came along on other jobs while still working as a Helper, teaching me about how to set up and lay out to weld up supports, clips, gusset plates, base plates using stick, mig, flux core welding techniques. We started work for a company that introduced us into pipe work. We went to on jobs connectors and progressed up to pipe fitters, working with Q.C's, Plant & company coordinaters, to set spools to Isometric blue prints.. We rigged pipe into peace with cranes, fork lifts, carry decks, come along's, chain hoists. Using measurements on print coordinates and elevations to make productive fits.. Installed supports, pipe shoes, shoe stops & guides. Whole working along pipe/combination welders I have found an intrest for pipe & combination welding. First I watched what went on to weld together pipe using TIG.. Learned the technique through a year of after work practice on my own time. Worked on carbon & stainless(Using purge) on horizontal, vertical positions & at a (6G)45degree. I've taken and passed 3 6G position pipe tests for separate company's. Used TIG, Flux Core, and stick winding techniques.

Welded with TIG on spools ranging from 1" to 24". Spools are all tacked up by the fitters then riggers come fly into place for us using a rail crane inside a shop. Then workers in shop come to MT or UT test the pipe we weld on. Xray tests is done on 3 of every 20 welds.
KBREnid, OKPipefitter4Being hired in as a pipe fitter we had to know our take offs on pipes of different inside diameter sizes of 45°,90° elbows & sockes fittings..Flew pipe off the loading trailer to check if there the right spools to be installedusing Iso and tag numbers. Use Iso to determine coordinates and spool measurements. Discuss with fore men & coordinator to make adjustments on factory welds. Most of work and fittings are done inside & on elevated platform inside pipe rack or scaffold.. Fits are inspected by QC, Ross and caddies are MT & UT tested, some are Xray tested..
