I was hanging out with some boxcars the other day I looked over and I saw something that almost made me faint… a really really ugly weld..
I do declare, those boxcar welds are terrible!

Looks like home depot is in favor of not an ugly, but flat out poor welds.

what is scary to me about the last 2 pics, is the fact that those welds are supposed to be holding a large amount of stone pavers up on a shelf. now if there’s 1 weld like that, there’s many of the same.

I was fishing some breakers on the Miami canal and stumbled upon this ugly weld job. It doesn’t look like a total massacre but I felt it was worth posting. Galvanized drain pipe?

Honestly, this does not surprise me, I work as a welder in a pretty large manufacturing plant and you should see the welds holding our cranes together, it’s amazing they don’t just fall apart.
