Lol can someone explain what "custom welded" is? I've heard of a good weld, a shitty weld, but not a custom weld  :o

My two favorite quotes...

And

"Weld er thick and grind it slick"

Hahahaha yeah that's custom alright. There's some welds on instagram that'll make your jaw drop. I can actually lay a very pretty mig weld, which does pretty much nothing for the strength of the weld, but it look s almost like a tig, which saves time grinding  :P

There's a whole world wide range of equipment, technique, experience, and I think most of us are probably in the middle somewhere. . .

I feel like it takes some kind of special skill to achieve that last weld.  How in the hell does that happen?

I am pretty sure that some days I could reproduce that if I manage to do everything wrong and keep doing it wrong....
