RE: De-welding

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
My understanding is that welds can be removed by "air gouging", i.e. the
weld is heated to melting temperature and an air jet blows out the molten
metal. But I would expect that the original pieces would require some new
weld filler to replace the molten material removed.
