Gas Welder – Welds metal parts, using gas welding equipment as specified by layout, welding diagram, or work order: Positions parts in jigs or fixtures on bench or floor, or clamps parts together along layout marks. Selects torch, torch tip, filler rod and flux, according to welding chart specifications or type and thickness of metal. Connects regulator valves and hoses to oxygen and fuel gas cylinders, and welding torch. Turns regulator valves to activate flow of gases, lights torch and adjusts gas mixture and pressure, to obtain desired flame, based on knowledge of gas-welding techniques. Holds torch at proper angle to metal and guides along weld joint, applying filler rod to molten area to form weld. Examines weld for bead size and other specifications. Repairs broken or cracked metal objects, fills holes, and builds up metal parts. May also apply flux to workpiece instead of filler rod. May also preheat workpiece in furnace or with torch. May also layout, position and tack weld workpieces. May also weld along vertical or overhead weld lines. May also scarf or groove weld prior to applying filler metal, using gas welding equipment. May also chip or grind off excess weld, slag, or spatter [GRINDER-CHIPPER (industry) II]. May also clean or degrease parts, using wire brush, portable grinder, or chemical bath. May also cut metal plates or structural shapes using gas torch. May also be designated according to type of gases used for example Welder, Acetylene (welding industry), Welder, Oxyacetylene (welding industry), Welder, Oxyhydrogen (welding industry). Important variations include type of metal welded, products, subprocesses, trade name of equipment, work site (inplant, job shop, construction site, shipyard), high-production or custom, level of ambidexterity required or type of joints welded (seam, spot, butt). May also be required to pass employer performance tests or standard tests to meet certification standards of governmental agencies or professional and technical associations.
