My shop doesn't want to inspect their tack welds anymore, so they want to prove that they are consumed in the final weld. I assume they'll be using some sort of macro etch to do so. It's a section 8 shop, but I found some section 4 and section 3 interpretations that say this is allowed, so I am at least considering it. My question is, can I really trust that these tacks are consumed in all cases? I see a considerable variance in size from day to day and person to person. Anybody have experience with something like this?
