When steel plates are welded together, at an angle of 90 degrees, the edges that meet are ground at 45 degrees. This gives a much stronger joint.
 
 
 
After grinding, the joint is positioned and ‘tacked’ to ensure there is no movement during the welding procedure.
 
 
The entire joint is welded. It is allowed to cool slowly. Rapid cooling, such as dipping in cold water will damage the joint and possibly weaken it.
