304 weld repair

by Dave

I just welded .065" 304 stainless tank. The purge wasn't complete and ended up with a little "sugar" in one section. Is there any way to repair the section? Grind and reweld?


thats all you can do...the better you can grind it without thinning the parent metal , the better it will weld...but dont expect it to weld great.

hope this helps,
