When sticking a horizontal weld it's one continuous weld, there are 2 stingers on a Y running off the same machine. Coming around the sides we steal each other's arc and keep going to eliminate restarts, and lower the chance of porosity. 100% X-ray, and they're not happy when you get a bad shot.

Impressive. You're a magician.
