Re: Differences in Center Frame Stiffeners

Thanks for the confirmation, I know a bit about heat treatment, still new at welding. I had a stainless tea pot heated dry, cooked it good and hot, left too long on the burner. . Where the flame touched the bottom, the hot spots, on the inside the pot now rusts over night with water in it, the rust follows the pattern of the flame print. Evidently the high heat caused the anticorrosion bits in the stainless, i.e... Chromium, Nickel to diffuse out of the bulk, and into the grain boundaries, thus leaving areas devoid of the corrosion stopping bits of Cr and Ni within the grains. .
