ASTM A266 (carbon steel forging) says this about repair welding -

option of the purchaser. If repair welding is performed, welders
and weld procedures shall be qualified in accordance with
Section IX of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.

TMoose,
Are you saying 'read the material specification'?

"Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but they are not entitled to their own facts."

RE: welding build up permission on SA266

Hi Ironic,

Yes.

But I proposed something similar in alisharif's double post in some other ET forum.
Here we may well have a language complication, in which cases I am sometimes willing to try to "prime the pump" a bit rather than resort immediately to applications of "the stick."

Also, yes, I enjoy mixing metaphors.
