  14. Hi high amps or wrong welding technique can cause under cut in a weld.udercut is when the very edge of weld meets parent metal,and has cut into parent metal,reducing thickness of the plate.1mm of under cut makes your plate metal 1mm thinner,and so on.look closely on the edge of weld and see if it’s got under cut,use your fingernail to feel,or a torch to look for shadow.
