All welding quests and
believes it was the welding I worked the most with, but the workshop
was relatively well
equipped with among other
things both swivelbench and milling machine.
These job descriptions can
therefore well enough serve as examples of the regular working days,
for me, on board in the
M/S "Vestan", even though I may have
forgotten a part of work tasks, such as eg. "piston- sjau" ; o).
About these kinds of
welding jobs also were common among the repairmans the most, in all
the boats at the time, I have not
no opinion on. The first of these jobs
should be performed inside a "hoist shaft". It's not very likely
that some would
characterize the place as comfortable work space but the actual welding dust extractor was good, for the
shaft served as the purest chimney. The
actual fix was, as far as I remember, welding on something that had
came loose on the weights associated
with the elevator. That job, I had probably forgotten if not the electrician at a later
the occasion gave it the positive
recognition. Hm, possibly, things like praise of the better remembered?
The repair of a cracked
elbow attached to a water pump, in the bottom of the engine room, I
The job started well in
that I bit my "to-blood" in the tongue, as a result of water spray and
When weld was done so the
insolent good, but had it been a welding test will it not been
approved due to adhesion/rooterror.
There we saw immediately the pump started, because then the spray stood
out from the
both ends of the weld between the it and
the elbow. How to complete "washerboom" I can not remember to have
sooner or later, regarding the electrode
choice. The material in the elbow may have been aducergods and maybe I
made the best choice of
electrode, which was possible, based on the available electrodes, but
it is not so
that a clean boom better emphasizes the
accomplishments when it is shot on target? Well, I guess it was not
was thinking about then, but probably it was the eminent
boom that caused me to remember the job.
The third and final
welding job I have chosen to tell about business for a vertical crack
water tank. I had to where the creep in
through a manhole in the tank, for the welding operation should be made
from the inside.
When it came to the actual
welding spot, I'm going to admit that the place high up in the mast on
the M/S "Northland",
was far more preferable. I think most of
the actual weld the chimney effect, which was not good. It was an incredible
smoke in there, but the
actual welding operation sequence otherwise with no special
complications and the tank was sealed.
