Weld discoloration





2000

I am relatively new to this site so please forgive me if this one has been covered in the past. I am a recent engineering graduate and enjoy metalworking in my spare time. I need to remove the discoloration caused by welding. I want to avoid abrasives and buffing because the welded pieces have a #8 finish. I have tried some commercial products, but the results were not so great. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Matt,

The weld discolorization can be removed using a stainless steel weldment cleaner and a portable power supply.
