2008 FLTRU 105th Anniversary w/ 110"
Yes, I welded for years as well and understand that concept. However, there are times/applications where you can make the function and form work for you; making a perfectly smooth and coated or chromed Harley exhaust with thick enough tubing to be perfectly smooth and mirror finish is far from ugly - it is workmanship in my eyes; with dedication to doing it right, not ugly.Iam happy, If your happy with your purchase.
As a welder for 45 yrs, I'll just say this and let it go.
If the cover pass on a weld is ground flush, polished or buff'd off...something is up. Usually ugly
** I've thought about posting this for a few minutes, not looking to getting into a pissing match
Just having dealt with welding inspectors for years on hospitals, brewery's, paper mills, water treatment plants, printing plants , powerhouses ( conventional & Nuclear)
Hope you don't take this the wrong way, just my experience**
