Today I was looking for some photos of a trip to Adelaide a few years ago. I didn't find them but I did find a whole lot of random ones.

1. Sign for the guys selling watermelons on the side of the road last summer
2. Submerged arc welding of a 40mm (1.5") plate for a bridge girder
3. Shadow, a friend's dog
4. A MAN stock truck demonstrator

Nice beads on that submerged arc. How many passes to finish that 1.5" plate? I used to assist a welder using submerged arc to weld sections of large feedwater heaters for the nuke plants. Welds were x-rayed at random spots and at all cross joints.

I`d love to watch that welder at work.
Is the need enough? or does the want suffice?
