There are a lot of excellent videos on welding stainless. The most common problem is argon coverage INSIDE the tubes.
We think itís a worthwhile investment in time to learn what great stainless welds look like and the steps needed prior to welding.
You cannot TIG in the wind
or with dirty stuff or no argon on both sides of the weld...meticulous attention to detail in prep is necessary. Itís your boat
and while you do not need to learn how to weld, itís a great idea to learn what a good weld should look like.
Welding Tips and Tricks with Jody has several videos.
Miller Welding too.
A good welder should be happy to spend a bit of time explaining this to you.
Lastly, you get what you pay for...itís a real skill.
Happy trails to you.
