The secret to achieving invisible, distortion-free butt welds is to place successive tack welds in between each other, quenched with compressed air only, until the gaps between the welds are about 1/4 inch apart. It is then OK to use no more than three quick tack welds to close the gap. Never try to run even a short bead. No stitch welding. Only simple tack welds.
