I'm a welder for the Plumbers and Pipe Fitters Union Local 123. I haven't installed the axle yet so i figured while it was off i would clean up the god awful welds that were on there. Check it out.......

You and me both. Once I get my ticket for GMAW, SMAW, and FCAW, TIG will be next. You can pull in some serious coin if you get good at it.

Welds look good, but did you use a stone to grind the welds down?

yeah i did. i knew i would regret it but this was just something to do to kill the time. i was going to buff'em out but i reminded myself it's just an axle that's going on a mud truck. so i said to hell with it.
