I've got an electron beam welder in the shed, I don't use it much as I prefer traditional welding techniques. I'd be interested to know the depth of the weld penetration aroung the hinges compared to if you had used Manual Metal Arc welding.
From my experience, they can be up to 300mm deep....

I just bought mine last week off eBay. Is yours a similar model?

Yeah ditto - we're in the same boat - desperately hoping that Liz Truss delivers on that promise of a trade deal with the China Board of Electron Beam Welding Manufacturers and Suppliers.
