I am designing a joint which forms an L shape with a 3/8" vertical Leg and a 3/4" horizontal leg. On this joint one corner of the vertical plate is touching one coner of the horizontal plate. I am calling for a 1/4 fillet to fill out the outside area where the two plates touch. I am using a 1/4" fillet based on the minimum weld size for a 3/4" plate. I want to add a weld bead on top of the horizontal plate where it meets the vertical plate.
For the bead am I required to use a 1/4" weld also? Or can I go down to an 1/8 bead?
