Using round stock like that, we always called them bridge tacks.
When we started this project just down river from the Bonneville dam on the Columbia River I had a fab shop in Portland Oregon cut out enough wedges and dogs to fill a 55-gallon drum for each. Takes a lot of dogs and wedges to align 10-feet dia pipe. Had to have a tent made for the weldors, they were running dual shield, that wind can really blow through the Columbia River gorge!

They are kind of a bridge tack. On smaller pipe you just put bridge tacks with MIG without the round bar because you can keep the weld away from the edge of the bevel. The round bar bridge tacks are always done with 7018.

That bicycle must be a poor mans weld tractor. You hold the flux-core gun in one hand and pedal the bike the opposite way while turning the pipe. See we can learn something from Hamsters. LoL

No, :lol: I didn't even take that picture. That was in General Cascade ship yard on Swan Island in Portland. I started there over seeing the ship yard workers put a crawler crane on a barge for us.
