NO I have not, if you cool it fast with compressed air or slow it is still going to warp! The only thing you will do is negate the the reason of welding it by making the welds useless. Critical or non a weld should be as strong as they can be.
I treat all welds the same.
The question is have you?

I'm sorry but I disagree. There is a time and purpose for many different situations. To make a blanket statement that all welds must be equal is going a bit far. I was originally just giving him ideas of things that have worked for me, to the degree I needed. Not every weld needs to be nuclear pressure vessel quality, some situations call for quicker processes to maintain costs, keep projects on schedule, etc.
I am by no means suggesting that the method I mentioned is the strongest or best, just a way to keep heat under control.
