    If you look closely at the picture you can see the spot welds.

    Seriously, I canít for the life of me see any welding. I see what looks like lubricant forming drops between the shearís clamp and the sheet workpiece as they separate. Other than that just the shear action slicing the sheet.

    On second thought you are right. There is no welding sparks or anything else. Just oil dripping. Canít weld with oil dripping.
