A few weeks ago, I built some small steel parts that will be used by a commercial aircraft overhaul facility.
Commercial aircraft tooling is usually built using drawings supplied by the either the OEM manufacturer or some others tooling designer…and sometimes, they are tough to interpret.
Have you ever built parts from a customers drawings where the drawings were full of errors?
…like welding symbols that call for a .060″ fillet weld using SMAW? (stick welding).
Can you make a .060″ fillet weld with stick? And why would you want to when the work is done in a shop?
In the end We learned It was just a typo and Tig welded it.
Trying to mix it up with more Mig and Stick, but today its TIG again.
