When welding 304 SS or other stainless steel structurals like tube and angle how do you keep the material from warping so bad. For example if I weld a "T" shape from 1" x 11ga square tube the top of the T will droop quite alot after the weld cools. I have tried welding in short bursts with some cool time but it still warps... I have tried GTAW and MIG welding. The MIG is the worst it splaters bad and is hard to get a small weld to look pretty. The GTAW is by far the easiest to control. Any tips???
