        I'm surprised more companies are not guilty of making the same kind of welds. Years ago Robot welds on car frames looked like only a fraction of a weld was holding their frames together.

              Not to mention the welds you see on run-of-the-mill factory-built trailers. Downright scary. Paint makes it look better.

                Come on guys.
                So Jeep will quietly buy back a certain year of production due to screwed up welds. It's a quiet buyback.
                So trailers from Missery are only stuck together with hot glue, production is up and the hitches and axles are quality.

                Anybody can be a welding machine operator with a few hours training.
                Jim Lincoln saw it coming in the 60s, machines that could and would minimize the need for weldors in the future for higher profit.
                He also advocated more folding and less welding.

                Ed Kraig has made a good living dekinking manufacturing weld processes. Ed's smart, he only answers questions and solves problems for money.
