I have a question regarding D1.6. In 4.7.5. Am I to understand you can qualify on base metals listed in Groups 1&2 in D1.1 and still be qualified to weld stainless?
You are noting the 2007 Revision of D1.6 and it does specify that D1.1 Group I or II base metals may be used for performance qualification with the Engineers approval.
The 2017 Revision of D1.6 is slightly more relaxed.
"6.13.5 Base Metal. Qualification established using any of the base metals listed in 1.4.1 or any of the metals listed in
AWS D1.1/D1.1M Groups I & II shall be considered as qualification to weld any base metals permitted in this code.
The base metal specified on a WPS used for welder or welding operator performance qualification may be substituted in
accordance with this requirement."
Just because you can do something may not necessarily mean that you should do something.
