    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!

    You shouldn't be pumping the pedal while tig welding! Those welds are achievable with standard tig welding techniques and a skilled operator, just being very consistent.

    What about the possibility that it was done robotically with TIG and a cold wire feeder?

    Well................

    I would not go quite that far...

    Some guys prefer to pump the pedal...

    John Marcella is one of them... and he seems to get by..

    I would rather think that the correctness of technique is more determined by the results than anything else....

    It sure looks like his work. There's a 35 page "MIG like TIG" thread at weldingweb.com with other examples of his work.

    I can do similar welds on 1/4" SS with a 316 filler. I only have a scratch start set up though.

    Guess I should have finished reading the thread before I commented.
