Can anyone tell me approximately what thickness material can be butt welded from one side without any edge preparation and still acheive full penetration (or close to it). Is this value dependant on the material or process that is used? I am primarily interested in structures made from low carbon steel or aluminum square tubing and welded using commonly available equipment (TIG, MIG or stick).
