    Default 1/8 side + 1/8 other = 1/4 penetration ???

    I see the machines for alum rated for 1/8.
    If I am welding 1/4 alum bar and do one side 1/8 -
    weld around on the other side for an 1/8 -
    doesn't that equal a one pass 1/4 inch weld on just one side ?
    What is the difference structurally or in practical terms ?

    dumb question - but seriously.
    Thanks, Stu
