I was just reading through the D 10.4 (recommended practices for austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel piping and tubing)
In paragraph 8.2 it refers to the proper technique for the use of SMAW electrodes as QUOTE the covered electrode is directed towards the the progress of welding (forehand method)(pushing?)"and state it is the same as used for carbon steel welding.UNQUOTE
Now I always thought the forehand technique was (pushing) and a few references I have confirn this; starting to think it may be a typo or am I totally off the mark??
