Wow! Can you return them? Looks like someone used them for target practice.

Well the company that I purchased from say they have never had this issue before. Im a little shocked at my luck of having issues with both. They requested pictures, which I have sent, but haven't responded to me yet. Not a good start so far for my first kegging experience.

The inside welds needs to be ground, smoothed and polished. The outside is just for looks, but still...
To me, as long as the inside was good, I would be too broken up over it (as long as the price was really good).

When I purchased there was nothing stating. That the stainless was compromised, either by weld or by grinder. I wouldn't have such an issue if it didn't damage the inside. The grinder over heated it right through, and the weld is pretty sloppy alot of thick slag inside of the keg. Both make me concerned for my beer if I use them.

Personally I wouldn't risk using them. I would demand either a full refund or an exchange with them providing the prepaid shipping labels to send them back. Selling you two clearly damaged products is totally unacceptable.

Last time I bought 4 cornies. They all had pespi residue in them. Two of them had spot welds. A lot cleaner then what you have shown.

Mine was buffed inside and I couldn't tell that they were worked on in the outside.

Those welds do not look so clean.

Well I agree, it would've been nice to know that they had been worked on. And it should've been buffed out and cleaned up on the inside. I don't know how anyone could.I can only get my arm a little into a corny and im a pretty thin guy. The pictures don't even make it look as bad as they r. They were taken with my phone and u can't even tell that the slag on the inside sticks out a good 1/4 ". They do hold pressure but if they contaminate my beer then what's the point...

I've got about 10 cornies and while I don't care about the outsides at all (stickers, small dents, busted handles, etc ...) those jagged welds on the inside would make me nervous.
