WHY we can't joint titanium and stainless steel in welding?

---------------------------------------------------

because of brittle inter metallic compounds that crack like glass.

The worst mistake you can make welding titanium is to accidentally pick up a stainless rod ...or any rod other than titanium.

you can hear it cracking while it cools.
