at a glance it dose look like a stich weld but it is not. It is taylor's weld. It might look like a stich weld but a closer look will show that there are no starts and stops. Stich welds have a small dot in the middle and lots of spatter.

there is a dot in the center

I'd kill to come work with you guys... Super clean fab, welding takes lots of time to figure out, it's been my job for three years and I still learn new things all the time

I would say that could be a whip technique, that is hold the trigger on and manipulate the bead manually. You can get the dot in the center with a trigger weld, or a "whip" .

We use a similar technique, and some people think they are trigger welds, but they are not. The dot in the center is something good to try to overlap the puddles, but sometimes you get a couple. The dot can be a stress riser to start a crack, but mainly if they have a pinhole, and none of those have that.

That all looks really nice, good work!!

it is that easy

it's a basic stitch weld. Most professional welder's will not use this method because it is considered a cold weld becauseth eheat stop's and then start's so the penitration sux. Never said anything about the fabrication work at all just the weld and him wishing he could do it. It's all for looks and that's it :d

THE WAY YOU CAN TELL IT'S A STITCH WELD IS LOOK AT THE CENTER OF THE PUDDLE YOU CAN SEE THE LITTLE TIT. IM GOING TO SAY THAT BRIAN WELDED THAT AND NOT TAYLOR



FYI: you can "stitch" weld without any cratering or pinholes in the center... Just DONT let the puddle cool before you start the next "stitch" and start the next puddle right on the edge or a little bit on the last weld :thumbsup: and ethier way you can't deny the excellence of these buggies... Works of art just like all of samco's fab which is also sweet like bear meat..

Tig welding is very time consuming . Bryan Tig welded some stuff on the Buggy he's currently working on . I will get some pics of them for you on Monday
