Is that a human weld or machine weld?

The rim of the gas cup is actually rested on the base metal, and rocked back and forth. If you take a glass cup and set it upside down on the rim at an angle, roll it back and forth and it kinda moves forward. Keeps the arc length perfect.

If you've ever tried to move a big barrel (or an oxy or acet tank) by tipping it a bit and rolling it side to side to get it to go forward, you have "walked the cup".

Done with TIG welding. Wish I was better at it.

It really isn't all that difficult when you have two boundries to go back an forth between.
However it really gits difficult when capping a butt joint weld.
Wrist action is the key (figure 8 movement) and no side to side movement of your arm.

ps: for a joint like the one shown a size 8 cup may be large enough but for a butt joint a #10 cup works the best for a cap.
