|less load than a proper weld? That's a given.
How many ways are there to prove the welds are junk? I mean, should I have them x-rayed, sonic tested, perform a metallurgical spectrographic analysis or put them in a trash compactor to see how, when, where they break?
Does every possible test need to be performed to prove they are low quality and inferior?
I'm pretty much done wasting my money and time on these - let the pictures speak a thousand words.
I'm not harping on you, but further analysis is a moot point.
