I really like these welds from an aesthetic point of view.
I can explain it. The guy is bad a** with a torch. Tig is my thing. I can weld any of the processes-but I live for tig! Those welds are awesome. I enlarged them and still can't find any start-stop points. Awesome! Looks like stainless filler on carbon. Hats off to whoever laid those beads!
