Just got a new job and I’m going to be taking a 3G short circuit downhill test on 3/8” carbon steel plate in a few days. I was told no one has ever passed a bend test doing downhill so I am hoping for some advice so I can hopefully pass and make a good impression. They all say it’s on the cap when it fails. What are some good settings for root, fill , and cap? Any advice would be appreciated

I recently got a piece of pipe. I believe it is copper nickel alloy. I am going to do a spark test to confirm material. Does copper nickel alloy pipe give off sparks and what color? What other test can I do to determine if it is copper nickel alloy?

Update did a spark test with grinder. No sparks, material removed easily. Not aluminum because it's too heavy. JD Brewer

Is it possible to use dual shield flux core for an open root pass? on a 3G open root 1” plate test with a 60-degree “v” groove. Using 1/16” flux core welding wire
I am taking a structural weld test for a company and this is what they told me before the test. I have not taken the test yet. I have done open root with MIG but not dual shield.
