First off I am happy I found this site since I am a bit confused. I have been welding for about 6months now. My company has made me the weld supervisor just because I have more exp. then the second welder had since they put both of us through schooling but a few months apart. Since he has been welding I have started to see at the end of my welds a hole. Not the regular "fish eye" but a hole not big but this concerns me I am afraid it is porosity within the weld.
The next thing I have noticed is that when I am done the bead and it is still red hot I can see what looks to be bubbles in it before I lift my helmet is this porosity in the weld because I don't recall seeing this much at all before.
I work with stuff that goes on trains and I need to be sure of what I am doing and like I said I am only a 6 month welder pushed into a supervisors position.
Any help would be appreciated.
